    A woman and boy were rushed to the hospital after their vehicle crashed in Escondido on the way home from a wedding Saturday night. 

    The California Highway Patrol says a 31-year-old man was driving east on State Route 78 at an excessive speed around 9:15 p.m.

    Trying to pass another vehicle, the driver swerved right too hard and traveled off the road near Interstate 15. The car hit a guardrail and slammed into a metal pole. 

    The 32-year-old woman and 8-year-old boy inside were taken to the hospital for moderate to major injuries.

    According to the CHP, alcohol is a suspected factor in the crash. 

    No arrests have been made.
