If you live in San Diego County, there are two certainties: death, and car accidents when it rains. The heavy rains of the last few days have contributed to hundreds of auto accidents, and yesterday in North County there were two dramatic ones.
First, in Carlsbad, two motorists had to be hospitalized after a serious accident on El Camino Real near Cannon. According to reports, yesterday in the late afternoon a van driving southbound on El Camino Real lost control and crossed over into the northbound lanes, driving into the path of a small pickup truck. The truck was spun around and hit by a SUV. The driver of the van, who was at fault for the accident, and the driver of the truck were both seriously injured in the accident, and taken to local hospitals.
The other serious accident occurred on Northbound I-15 when a big rig truck crashed onto of a small vehicle. This accident occurred at nearly the same time as the Carlsbad crash, and also caused injury. According to reports, the big rig lost control in the rain and jack-knifed in the rain, landing on top of a compact car. It spilled gravel across freeway lanes and caused a huge traffic jam. The driver of the small car suffered injuries.
