Two teens injured in early-morning accident

Driver, 16, had provisional license, suspected of being under influence of alcohol

Two Ramona teenagers suffered moderate to major injuries in a collision on San Vicente Road at Green Haven Lane early Sunday morning, California Highway Patrol reports.

The teens, both females and both age 15, were taken to Palomar Medical Center.

The driver of the vehicle, a 2010 Chevrolet Camaro, is a 16-year-old Ramona resident who had received a provisional driver’s license in June and is suspected of being under the influence of alcohol, according to the CHP report.

Two other passengers in the car, a 15-year-old female and 16-year-old male, were uninjured, said CHP Officer Brian Kattke. The driver also was uninjured.

The accident occurred about 3:35 a.m. when the Camaro, eastbound on San Vicente Road approaching Green Haven Lane at an extremely high rate of speed, drove onto the center median and continued a short distance on the median, Kattke reported. The driver oversteered right, and the Camaro started spinning in a counterclockwise direction, sideswiping a parked Toyota Celica, Kattke noted.

The vehicle continued spinning in an easterly direction, striking two other parked vehicles—a Toyota Corolla and a Ford Ranger—and stopped in the roadway about 600 feet east of where it initially left the road, according to the accident report.
