Drunk Driving Suspected In 4-Car Wreck

2 People Injured

Two people are hospitalized in an accident involving four cars -- and police say alcohol may have played a role.

It happened at 31st Street and Oceanview Boulevard in Memorial Friday morning.

Police said a suspected drunk driver ran the stop sign and was broadsided by an SUV. The out-of-control drivers then hit two parked cars.

Lawrence Cahill of the San Diego Police Department said, "There's some statements that one of the drivers might have been drinking prior to the collision and there's an investigation into whether that person was under the influence or not."

Residents said the intersection is a dangerous one because the stop sign is in what they call a blind spot.

"This is a corner where we hear crashes very often," said Donna Harrison.  "Eight to 10 cars have crashed here."

Luckily, both drivers were wearing seatbelts. They were taken to the hospital for minor injuries.  Neighbors said they would continue to ask the city to put in a stoplight.
