SAN DIEGO COUNTY, CA — Police in Chula Vista say a male driver intentionally hit an SUV Friday morning, causing the victim to collide head-on with a tree, according to OnScene.TV.
The incident occurred on the northbound lanes of Hunte Parkway near South Greensview Drive and Oak Springs Drive at 7:25 a.m.
A woman was driving an SUV north on the parkway when the male driver of a pickup truck sped up, tailgated her, and sounded his horn. He then moved into lane 2 and swerved into the path of the SUV, hitting it.
The action caused the woman to lose control of her vehicle, sending it over the center divider. The SUV traveled into oncoming traffic, ran off the roadway, and collided head-on with a tree.
Following the crash, the driver of the pickup made a U-turn back to the scene. The SUV’s driver and her juvenile passenger were “badly shaken,” but not reported injured.
After questioning all parties, the causing driver was released. An investigation remains ongoing.
