CARLSBAD, Calif. – A car crashed onto a Carlsbad beach early Tuesday morning, authorities said.
Officials were called to the scene just before 9 a.m. for reports of an SUV that had veered from the roadway near Carlsbad Boulevard and Solamar Drive and landed on the beach, according to a post from the Carlsbad Police Department.
Officers arrived on the scene and located a single victim, a female driver, who was taken to the hospital by the Carlsbad Fire Department. The woman sustained non-life-threatening injuries and is expected to recover.
California State Parks and a local towing company worked to remove the SUV from the beach and the streets near the accident were briefly closed while the incident was cleaned up.
A photo posted by the Carlsbad Police Department Tuesday showed the SUV badly damaged by the crash.
The matter remains under investigation at this time.
