According to California Highway Patrol, a head-on crash that split a car in half in unincorporated Lakeside left two people dead on Thursday morning.
CHP Officer Travis Garrow said the two cars collided on Wildcat Canyon Road near Willow Road at about 6:30 a.m. CHP said a Honda Accord carrying a 53-year-old man and a 21-year-old woman, both from El Cajon, was speeding southbound at the same time as a Porsche with a 43-year-old Santee woman inside was heading northbound. Garrow said the Honda veered to outside curb of the road and driver appeared to over-correct, driving into the path of the Porsche.
Garrow added the collision force was so great it caused the Honda to be cut in half, basically right down the middle. The man was pronounced dead at the scene. The woman was taken to Sharp Memorial Hospital in a helicopter where she died from her injuries. The woman in the Porsche was transported via ambulance to Sharp Memorial Hospital with major injuries.
