A broken bumper, smashed car windshield and debris strewn across the road showed the aftermath of a Carlsbad crash that left three pedestrians hospitalized early Saturday.
Carlsbad Police say around 12:45 a.m., a 49-year-old woman driving a white car rammed into three people walking in the northbound lanes of Carlsbad Boulevard, just north of Walnut Avenue.
The pedestrians – two 29-year-old women and one 31-year-old man – suffered unspecified injuries.
Once Oceanside and Carlsbad Fire crews arrived, two of the victims were taken to the hospital by ambulance, and a helicopter landed in the road to transport the third person.
The driver, who remained at the scene of the crash, was ordered to undergo a roadside DUI test.
No arrests have been made because fault still has to be determined, Carlsbad Police say.
The traffic division will continue investigating this incident.
