A major car accident on Interstate 8 has claimed the lives of two people, and seriously injured a third. The accident occurred at approximately 2:30 a.m. Monday morning near what is called the Ocean Beach Freeway, where I-8 enters into the Mission Bay area.
Details surrounding the accident are unclear, but witnesses say that one of the two vehicles involved was going the wrong way on the freeway. The 2008 Honda Civic containing the two individuals who died flopped over. Those individuals were identified as Rebecca O’Mara, 21, and Joshua Carr, 25. The driver of the other vehicle, a 2008 Toyota Tundra, was Adrian Villanueva, 25, who apparently suffered a broken right wrist and fractured collarbone.
CHP’s website stated that it has sent a blood technician to the hospital to determine if Villanueva was under the influence of alcohol at the time of the accident.
