Single-vehicle accident kills one, injures four
One individual was killed and four others, including two Boy Scouts, sustained injuries after a single-vehicle rollover accident along state Route 79, near Lake Henshaw in San Diego County, California. The accident occurred around 9:15 a.m. on Saturday, June 11.
California Highway Patrol officials said their investigators are still trying to find out what factors contributed to the crash. California Fire Captain Kendal Bortisser said one adult was declared dead at the scene of the accident, two adults were brought to the hospital by an ambulance, and the two San Diego-based Boy Scouts were airlifted via Mercy Air helicopter to receive treatment at a local hospital. The victims had to be extricated from the vehicle by rescue teams. Public traffic was closed on all lanes of the highway to facilitate the rescue and were reopened at 2 p.m.
