SAN DIEGO, CA — A suspected drunken driver headed the wrong way on the San Diego-Coronado Bridge crashed her car into two pickup trucks, injuring all three drivers and prompting a shutdown of the bridge in both directions early today.
San Diego resident Briana Rall, 24, was behind the wheel of the eastbound Ford Fusion that collided with a Ford F-150, then struck a Dodge Ram in the westbound lanes near the toll plaza on the Coronado side shortly after 4a.m., according to the California Highway Patrol.
The driver of the Ford F-150, a 49-year-old San Diego woman, suffered major injuries in the crash and was also taken to UC San Diego Medical Center.
The 27-year-old San Diego man who had been driving the Dodge Ram sustained minor injuries and was taken to the same hospital, Sanchez said.
The bridge was reopened shortly before 6 a.m., according to the CHP.
