Vehicle flips in Carlsbad Inn parking lot

Two sisters were recuperating Tuesday after the vehicle one of them was driving flipped onto its side in a restaurant parking lot in downtown Carlsbad, police said.

The accident happened at the Carlsbad Inn on Carlsbad Boulevard around 8:30 p.m. Monday, according to Carlsbad police Sgt. Greg White.

The sisters, both in their 70s, had dined at the restaurant with a third sister earlier in the evening. They had just returned to the parking lot to retrieve one of their vehicles after making an emergency trip to the hospital to visit the third sister, who was taken by ambulance to the hospital after she began choking during dinner, the sergeant said.

Upon re-entering the parking lot, the sisters’ vehicle ran into a parking barrier, causing it to elevate upward, then flip onto it side. White said the Oceanside Fire Department cut through the vehicle’s roof to free to the women.

One of the sisters was taken to the hospital as a precautionary measure and the other was released at the scene after being checked out by paramedics, White said, adding both were likely to make a full recovery.
