Oceanside Crash Sends Two to Hospital

Two people are in the hospital after a car crashed into multiple fences and landed upside down on the sidewalk in Oceanside, police said.

Shortly after 7:00 p.m. Sunday, police said a man was heading eastbound on North Avenue when his silver SUV smashed through a backyard fence near North and Temple Heights Drive.

The impact was enough to throw a concrete post near the sidewalk across the yard.

A man was taken by air to Scripps Memorial Hospital La Jolla with major injuries. The passenger also suffered major injuries.

Police said speed and alcohol may have been a factor in the crash.

Residents in the area said speeding was an issue on the road.

“The worst fear is that the fence isn’t going to stop it,” said neighborhood resident Mary Beth Patrick. “Something big is going to come tearing through there and it’s just not going to stop it.”

The identity of the driver is not being released at this time, police said.
