San Diego DUI attorneys report that 3 students at San Diego State University were injured early Tuesday when the car they were in went out of control on a high-speed turn and crashed into a fast-food restaurant.
Witnesses said the 1976 Chevrolet Camaro was allegedly speeding eastbound on Montezuma Road at about 2 a.m. when the driver tried to make a right turn on College Avenue. The car was going too fast to make the turn, and it crashed into the concrete-block wall of Señor Pancho’s taco shop the corner of College and Montezuma, San Diego DUI attorneys are told.
The Camaro was destroyed in the impact, but the driver was able to get out of the wreck. His two passengers were trapped in the back seat. Rescuers used the Jaws of Life to get them out.
All three men, believed to be in their 20s, were taken to Scripps Mercy Hospital, San Diego DUI attorneys understand. Police said their injuries ranged from “minor to serious.
Several people were at the restaunt when the Camaro crashed, but nobody in the intersection or the restaurant was injured, according to San Diego DUI lawyers.
“The driver is a 20-year-old white male and will be charged with felony DUI,” Officer McCollough said in a statement.
