SAN DIEGO, CA — Two teenagers died Monday night after a solo-car crash that seriously injured two others at Torrey Pines State Beach in La Jolla, reports Times of San Diego.
The fatal collision occurred off Torrey Pines Road, between beach towers 4 and 5 along the beach. San Diego police responded to the scene shortly after 11:00 p.m.
An early investigation indicates a 19-year-old man was driving a 2020 Subaru WRX at a high rate of speed with two 18-year-old and two 19-year-old passengers in the vehicle. At one point, the driver lost control of the car and veered off the roadway. The vehicle crashed through a guardrail and hit multiple rocks before it came to a stop on the beach.
Two of the teen passengers died as a result of their injuries, confirmed authorities.
The other two teen passengers were both hospitalized with serious injuries. Both patients sustained lung damage, and one suffered a broken hip.
The 19-year-old driver received minor injuries.
An investigation remains underway, but police said they suspect alcohol contributed to the wreck.
