Driver suffers serious head injury in crash with work truck


SAN DIEGO (CNS) – A 32-year-old man suffered a serious head injury Friday morning when the car he was driving was struck by a commercial truck at a Sorrento Valley intersection.

The crash happened shortly before 8 a.m. at the intersection of Miramar Road and Miramar Place, just east of Interstate 805, San Diego police Officer Robert Heims said.

The victim’s 2015 Chrysler 200 sedan was struck by a westbound 2020 Chevrolet Silverado Stake Bed truck while he attempted to make a left turn onto Miramar Place from eastbound Miramar Road, Heims said.

The Chrysler driver was taken to a hospital for treatment of “significant head trauma,” the officer said, adding that the 23-year-old man driving the truck was uninjured.
