Last week, 2 people were injured in an accident that police are calling a “non-contact hit-and-run.” The accident occurred on Interstate 5 in Oceanside at around 2 p.m.
According to the California Highway Patrol, 2 people in an SUV were injured when their vehicle swerved off of I-5 and rolled into a drainage channel off of the highway. The SUV veered off of the highway in an attempt to avoid a collision with a car that tried to move into his lane.
The vehicle that caused the accident did not stop after the SUV crashed. As of Friday afternoon, police were still looking for the vehicle’s driver.
The SUV’s 37-year old driver was ejected from the vehicle and airlifted to Scripps Memorial Hospital La Jolla with serious injuries. The vehicle’s front seat passenger, 33, was also taken to the hospital, but in an ambulance and with moderately serious injuries.
