On Sunday, a man was left with serious injuries when he was thrown from his vehicle after losing control and colliding with multiple barriers, including the center divider and a bus bench on Santo Road in Tierrasanta.
The preliminary reports showed that a 30-year-old man was driving southbound on Santo Road near Shields Street in a 2015 black Dodge Challenger when he jumped the curb into northbound traffic at about 11 p.m. Sunday. The man then crossed back into southbound traffic and went off the roadway, hitting shrubs, plants, trees, a bus bench and a retaining wall along the east side of the street, before veering into the northbound lanes where he was thrown from the vehicle.
The vehicle finally came to a stop in the No. 1 lane of north Santo Road. On arrival, responding officers found the driver lying unconscious in the roadway behind his vehicle. The man is listed in stable condition with cuts to his legs and face, as well as facial fractures and internal injuries. Alcohol is suspected in this crash.
An investigation is ongoing.
