Patrol police car

An 18-year-old man was hospitalized Feb. 13 with a lacerated liver, and his passenger, a man in his 20s, suffered a fractured left leg in a two-vehicle crash in Point Loma Heights, police said.

The 18-year-old was driving a vehicle that was speeding south in the 2700 block of Worden Street at 12:20 a.m. when another driver going east in the 3900 block of Polack Street stopped for a stop sign and began to make a left turn onto Worden when he was struck by the vehicle driven by the 18-year-old, according to Officer Tony Martinez of the San Diego Police Department.

As a result of the crash, one of the vehicles struck five parked vehicles, Martinez said.

The 30-year-old driver of the other car suffered scrapes and bruises but didn’t require hospitalization, Martinez said.

No arrests were reported.
