According to the Chula Vista Police Department, four people were injured after a two-vehicle collision in Chula Vista Saturday night, October 22, 2022.
The crash occurred at 10:16 p.m. on Otay Lakes Rd onto southbound Hunte Parkway.
A male driver and three female passengers were seen by witnesses heading west on Otay Lakes Rd before turning left onto Hunte Parkway and heading south.
When the male truck driver and his female passenger were headed east on Otay Lakes Rd., they had the “Green” light.
The rain had soaked the roads by this point. The impact pushed one of them back when the two cars met at the intersection.
The male front-seat passenger was trapped in the vehicle and had to be freed by the fire department.
Two men in the car were seriously hurt, and another was injured but not seriously.
The truck’s female passenger suffered minor to moderate wounds. Four people were taken to area hospitals for treatment.
The cause of the crash has yet to be determined.
