Scripps Ranch fatal crash

SAN DIEGO – A motorist was killed early Friday in a single-vehicle crash on a freeway connector ramp near Scripps Ranch.

A caller told the California Highway Patrol a vehicle struck a light pole  and smashed into a tree along the transition from westbound state Route 52 to northbound Interstate 15 around 1:45 a.m., CHP officials said. The impact downed the pole and sent live wires onto the roadway.

It was not immediately clear if the driver was the vehicle’s sole occupant, but no one involved in the crash was taken to a hospital, according to the CHP and the San Diego Fire-Rescue Department.

The transition from westbound state Route 52 to Interstate 15 was closed following the crash, but was reopened shortly before 4:30 a.m.

    PROBABLY SOME DOUCHE BAG TRUMP SUPPORTER, COMING OUT OF THE SANTEE TRAILER PARK, HEADED TO CHEETAHS TO WATCH HIS LITTLE SISTER POLE DANCE.

    Wow Ron, that’s some hate for someone who doesn’t know all the facts about this person or anything for that matter. Santee has come a long way in the last decade and is actually a pretty desirable place to live now. And as far as Cheetahs, if you’d been paying attention you’d have known that it’s been shut down for a little while now.
    Did someone from Santee take advantage of your sister once? Did you?
    Why all the hate? Come, lie down on the couch and tell me about your mother

    Actually Ron I knew the individual who passed in that accident and to think that someone could come out and make a remark like that over a death and loss of an individual whom you do not know is repulsive. He was a very kind man who has always helped those around him through the years, never shunning an individual, he probably would not have even shunned you despite you blatant ignorance to the notion of having any respect for the deceased or others that you know nothing about. You should feel ashamed.
