Solana Beach man killed in car crash

By City News Service

A head-on collision on a rural road near Lake Hodges killed one person Nov. 18 and left another severely injured, authorities reported.

The crash occurred at about 6:45 a.m., when an eastbound 2005 Honda Pilot driven by a 45-year-old Solana Beach man crossed a double yellow divider line on Elfin Forest Road at Fortuna del Este in the path of a 2000 Nissan Frontier pickup truck, according to the California Highway Patrol.

The collision killed the driver of the SUV at the scene, CHP public affairs Officer Jim Bettencourt said. The man’s name was withheld pending family notification.

Medics took the other motorist, a 59-year-old woman, to Palomar Medical Center for treatment of major trauma.

The wreck forced the closure of the roadway between Elfin Forest Lane and Elfin Creek Trail for about two hours.

The cause of the crash was under investigation, though intoxication did not appear to be a factor, according to Bettencourt.
