SEELEY — Three San Diego residents were killed and four more people were injured in a single-vehicle accident on Interstate 8 south of here.
A press release from the California Highway Patrol states seven individuals, five from San Diego and two from Chula Vista, were heading east on Interstate 8 around 5:05 p.m. Wednesday and were just west of Forrester Road, which is west of El Centro.
The press release states the van in which the group was traveling was in the right lane.
The 22-year-old male driver for unknown reasons started to veer onto the asphalt shoulder. The driver tried to steer back to the left but that caused the vehicle to roll.
The driver and two passengers died. The driver's identity was not available this morning because his next of kin hadn't been notified of the death by the authorities.
