A serious car accident on the 15 freeway in Fallbrook Friday afternoon has killed three and seriously injured three others. The crash took place just after noon, not far from West Lilac Road. The driver of an SUV traveling southbound lost control of the vehicle when a tire became damaged. The car flipped and rolled into northbound lanes.
Two surviving adults and one toddler were transported to nearby hospitals for treatment.
At this time, it does not appear that excessive speed or recklessness contributed to the auto accident.
All the southbound lanes of Interstate 15 were closed, as well as one northbound lane.
Our thoughts are the family and friends affected by this tragedy.
