Solo-Vehicle Crash on Torrey Pines Road Leaves Two Teens Dead
Two teenagers were killed in a solo-vehicle collision in San Diego on Monday, April 25th.
The incident occurred around 11 p.m. on Torrey Pines Road.
Per reports, a 19-year-old man was speeding in a Subaru WRX with four passengers before losing control and driving off the roadway.
As a result, the vehicle crashed into the center median and also hit a guardrail. This also caused the Subaru to overturn.
Three people suffered injuries and two sadly died due to the impact.
Serious injuries were sustained in two of the passengers which included a pelvic/hip fracture, lung contusion, and fractured ankle.
One of the deceased has been identified as 19-year-old Joshua Adonai Manzanares, of Lake Elsinore.
Additionally, the driver sustained minor injuries. It is unclear if drugs or alcohol were involved.
The crash remains under investigation.
