La Mesa, CA – Head-On Collision Kills One, Injures Another

Head-on collision in La MesaLa Mesa, CA (August 15, 2018) – A head-on collision Tuesday resulted in the death of one person and serious injuries for another.  The crash took place on Riviera Drive, just south of Spring Street around 7:45 am.  Based on initial reports, a Toyota Camry and and a Jeep Cherokee were traveling in opposite directions.  The Camry, traveling west, crossed into oncoming traffic, and struck the Jeep head-on.

Following the crash, both drivers were trapped inside their vehicles.  Emergency rescue personnel were able to work and extricate them.  Unfortunately, the Camry driver did not survive his injuries from the crash.  The driver of the Cherokee is in a hospital with minor injuries.  Police have not released the names of the victims in this crash.  The driver of the Camry is only identified as a 40 year old man.

An initial investigation suggests that distracted driving played a role in this crash.  The La Mesa Police Department continues to investigate and no further information is available at this time.
