Driver Killed After Plowing Into South Bay Home

A pickup truck plowed into a South Bay home early Sunday morning, killing the driver and seriously injuring three passengers.

The accident happened just after midnight in the 3300 block of Del Sol Boulevard in Otay Mesa.

According to police, a Nissan Titan truck was speeding down Del Sol and lost control. The truck plunged down a hill and into the backyard of a house on Soldau Drive.

Neighbor George Preciado heard the crash happen.

“It’s like somebody stepped on a lot of aluminum cans for a while, just rolling and rolling. Then all you hear is screams,” Preciado said.

The driver was thrown from the truck and pronounced dead at the scene. A man sitting in the front seat was also ejected. He was in critical condition at last check. Police say two women in the backseat also suffered serious injuries.

Officials say all the victims are in their 20s.

There is no word yet how much damage was done to the home or if drugs or alcohol played a role in the crash.
