    One killed in single-vehicle collision near Camp Pendleton

    By Jermaine Ong,


    OCEANSIDE, Calif. (KGTV) - One person was killed and two others were hurt early Saturday morning in a single-vehicle crash on Interstate 5 in the Oceanside area, the California Highway Patrol reported.

    The rollover crash occurred at around 5:45 a.m. on northbound I-5 near Las Pulgas Road, CHP officials stated.

    According to the CHP, a black BMW 440I was heading north when -- for reasons under investigation -- it veered to the left and into the center median guard rail.

    The BMW then veered back to the right, overturned and collided with a call box and barbed wire fence.

    Emergency crews arrived to perform life-saving measures on the male driver, but he was pronounced dead at the scene. He was identified as a 20-year-old from Mount Vernon, Washington, the CHP said.

    A 21-year-old male passenger from Oceanside sustained major non-life threatening injuries and was hospitalized.

    CHP officials said a 19-year-old female passenger suffered minor injuries and declined medical treatment at the scene.

    Per CHP officials, it is unknown if alcohol and/or drugs played a role in the crash.

    Anyone with information on the incident is asked to contact the Oceanside Area CHP office at 760-643-3400.
