According to ABC San Diego News Channel 10, the rollover crash happened on Los Vallecitos Drive near Vallecitos de Oro at about 7:45 p.m. The teen passenger was partially ejected when the vehicle overturned and died as a result of injuries sustained in the wreck. The 20-year-old driver reportedly made an unsafe turning movement, which caused the SUV to rollover in the roadway.
Initial reports indicate that alcohol and marijuana are suspected to be factors in this fatal crash.

Law enforcement officials with the San Diego Sheriff’s Department are asking any witnesses to come forward, as the wreck is still under investigation.
