Tragedy in Miramar

A three-vehicle collision left two people dead in Miramar on Saturday, confirmed the California Highway Patrol in a press release. CHP San Diego area units received a call around 2:43 a.m. reporting a crash on northbound Interstate 15, near Miramar Way. Based on their preliminary investigation, CHP said a Honda Civic, driven by 25-year-old Esteban Coronado from Escondido, was traveling on I-15 northbound, north of Miramar Way, when it struck the rear of a Toyota 4Runner driven by a man from San Diego. The Honda became disabled within the traffic lanes when it was then struck by a Chevrolet Colorado, driven by 22-year-old Joseph Michael Martin from Sun City, CHP explained. Two passengers in the Honda sustained fatal injuries and were pronounced dead at the scene. According to CHP, Coronado and Martin were suspected to be under the influence of alcohol and/or drugs. They were both arrested and booked into San Diego County Jail. The northbound lanes of I-15 were closed for about three and a half hours while CHP investigated and cleared the scene. Traffic was diverted to the I-15 northbound during that time. The cause of the triple crash remains under investigation by CHP. The names of the deceased individuals are being withheld pending notification of family by the San Diego County Medical Examiner's Office.
