Deadly car crash in Ocean Beach

Pregnant woman survives

A head-on crash in Ocean Beach caused the death of a woman and sent another woman who is nine months’ pregnant to the hospital on the evening of April 21.

The deceased had been traveling east on West Point Loma Boulevard in a 14-year-old Honda CRX when she reportedly veered into the opposite lane and crashed head-on into the pregnant woman's Toyota Camry.

Local resident Denine Hunt heard the crash and came out to see what had happened. She said that there are quite a few accidents on this street because of people speeding.

By the time I had come upon the crash, firefighters had already used the jaws of life to extricate the deceased from the vehicle. She reportedly was not wearing a seatbelt, nor did her car have an airbag. The jaws had to be brought in because she was jammed under the steering column. She appeared to have died instantly, according to SDPD Sgt. Dougherty, who gave the press a statement about three hours after the crash.

He stated that it was certain the CRX driver had caused the crash by veering into the opposite lane and that if she had been wearing her seatbelt she would have most likely survived. He also said that the pregnant woman had survived with minor injuries due to her airbag deploying.

Dougherty would not state whether the victims were Obecians, due to the fact that next of kin had to be notified first, but he did confirm that they were both from San Diego.
