Earlier this week, there was a fatal crash involving a semi truck on State Route 78 in San Marcos. According to ABC San Diego News Channel 10, the incident happened just west of Twin Oaks Valley Road. Very few details have been released about this fatal crash, but initial reports indicate that a Honda CRV slammed into the back of a semi truck. The driver of the CRV died in the crash. No information has been released on whether or not anybody else was injured or on the cause of the crash, which could still be under investigation.
A few hours after that crash, there was another collision on SR-78 near Twin Oaks Valley Road. This time, there were three vehicles involved, and a Ford pickup truck overturned. At least one person was transported to the hospital for treatment of major injuries.
