San Marcos Fire Department crews responded to the crash site at Rancho Santa Fe Drive and W. San Marcos Boulevard at about 2 a.m.

The vehicle crashed through a wrought-iron fence and came to a stop on a sloped hillside near two electrical boxes. The driver and one passenger were trapped inside, according to the San Diego County Sheriff’s Department.
