    Hey FOX5 you need to get your information correct!!! This occurred in PAUMA VALLEY not Rincon. FYI Rincon is not even a town in San Diego County. And the map that you have attached to the article is also wrong! Great journalism skills!

    • shut up

      Rincon is an unincorporated community, just as ….. Pauma Valley is an unincorporated community, and if you google map the location identified in the story, it is correct. Also, the information is “according to the California Highway Patrol.” now shut up and go find something to do you f*cking moron
