    The crash happened just before 5 a.m. on Ingraham Street in the Crown Point area of San Diego.

    When firefighters and police arrived, the two people inside the car were trapped. Firefighters cut the top of the car off so paramedics and EMTs could get them out and into an ambulance.

    Both were transported to Scripps La Jolla with what were described as major injuries.

    Dave Hausman lives just on the other side of the wall. He said he was asleep when he heard a big bang.

    “I thought it was an earthquake, I thought it was game over,” he said.

    Soon after sirens could be heard and he realized it was a “horrible, horrible crash,” he said

    Hausman watched the emergency workers cut away part of the car and remove a passenger he described as a woman.

    Police officers shut down Ingraham to Riviera during the rescue.

    Officials did not identify the victims in the crash or release a cause of the accident.
