Residents in a Mira Mesa neighborhood said the collision that took the life of a 59-year old woman and injured her husband Thursday morning was the not the first crash to occur in the area.
"I say there is an accident at least once a year," neighbor Stephanie told NBC 7. She did not wish to reveal her last name.
Around 6 a.m., a driver failed to stop at a red light and crashed into two people crossing Mira Mesa Boulevard at Marbury Avenue, according to San Diego Police.
The woman died in the collision and her 64-year old husband was rushed to a nearby hospital with a broken bone and head injuries, police said.
The driver, identified only as a 26-year-old man, stayed at the scene.
Several people stopped by to help the victims, including a nurse and an officer with the academy.
Stephanie told NBC 7 that Thursday's crash was one too many.
"Before we moved in, we didn't know but we found out later that there was a car crash where the car ran directly into of this house," she said.
She added that speeding is an issue on Mira Mesa Boulevard.
"We could really kind of use a big protective wall," she said.
The driver was not arrested or cited in the collision. The investigation was ongoing.
