Vista, CA – Deadly Crash Involving Multiple Vehicles on State Route 78
Vista, CA (August 5, 2018) – The California Highway Patrol provided a report which stated that one woman was killed and two other individuals were injured in a multi-vehicle crash that took place early Sunday morning on State Route 78 in Vista. The fatal collision reportedly occurred in the westbound lanes of State Route 78, in the vicinity of Mar Vista Road at approximately 2:15 a.m.
According to the report filed by the California Highway Patrol, the female driver was apparently traveling down State Route 78 when her vehicle overturned on the roadway for reasons that are presently unknown. While the woman’s car remained overturned in the middle of the road, at least three other vehicles crashed into it.
Emergency personnel arrived on the scene to provide assistance when they found the woman unresponsive inside her vehicle. Unfortunately, she was pronounced dead at the scene of the crash. Two more people were reportedly injured in the accident as they were immediately transported to a local hospital to be treated for their injuries.
State Route 78 had to be shut down while investigators began their preliminary investigation. No further information has been provided, and authorities have not ruled out intoxication as a possible contributor. The investigation is ongoing at this time.
Our heartfelt prayers and deepest condolences are extended to the family members of the deceased victim. We also maintain hope that the other two victims will experience full recoveries from their injuries.

Investigators likely have an understanding that the overturned vehicle caused the accident, however, they will certainly be looking to establish why the car rolled over. In any event, as long as the investigation shows that either negligent operation or mechanical failure of the vehicle caused the collision, then there will likely be grounds for personal injury claims.
