La Jolla BMW Crash

La Jolla BMW CrashSAN DIEGO — Four people, including a mother and two children, when a speeding BMW slammed into an SUV near La Jolla High School, fire officials said.

The black BMW, driven by a man, was speeding down Nautilus Street near Avenida La Reina just before 10 a.m. when it hit a parked car and slammed into a white SUV carrying a mother and two children, San Diego Fire-Rescue spokesman Lee Swanson said.

The BMW, which also knocked over a power pole, flipped on its side, landing on downed power lines. The SUV ended up in the front yard of a home.

Firefighters had to use heavy equipment to cut off the roof of the BMW to get the driver out. He was taken by ambulance to Scripps La Jolla Hospital for treatment of moderately seriousĀ  injuries, Swanson said.

The woman was taken to Sharp Memorial Hospital and her children were treated at Rady Children’s Hospital. All three had minor injuries, Swanson said.

Nautilus Street was expected to be closed for several hours during the accident investigation.

    Totally agree. Beamers seem to always be speeding no matter where they are. That's why they drive a high performance vehicle. I'm sure insurance companies are aware of that too. Hope they have high premiums.
