Escondido Vehicle Collision


At around 9:40 p.m. this evening the driver of a Chevrolet Impala LT was involved in an accident on Center City Parkway and Town Center Drive. The driver of the Impala is also suspected of a previous hit and run just minutes before he side swiped a BMW which was headed westbound forcing that vehicle off the roadway and over the center divider and into the oncoming traffic in the opposite direction. The driver of the Impala tried to flee the scene and had to be restrained by bystanders even though he had suffered injuries in the collision. He was transported by ambulance to Palomar Medical Center and the extent of his injuries are unknown at this time. Alcohol is suspected to have been a factor in this incident. No further details are available at this time as the incident remains under further investigation.
