22-Year-Old Man Dies in San Marcos Crash on SR 78

San Marcos, California – A 22-year-old driver from Vista was killed in a San Marcos accident on State Route 78 near San Marcos Boulevard on Thursday morning, according to the California Highway Patrol.

At around 6:15 a.m. January 7, CHP said the driver was heading east on SR 78 in a 2007 Ford Focus when, for unknown reasons he lost control and collided with the guardrail.

The vehicle ended up 20 feet down an embankment on the side of the roadway.

The driver then walked into the traffic lanes and was hit by an eastbound 2017 Toyota Camry.

The Vista man was pronounced deceased at the scene.

Police closed the on-ramp from San Marcos Boulevard to eastbound SR-78 as well as the two right lanes of eastbound SR-78 near San Marcos Boulevard following the incident.

The cause of the crash is under investigation.

Swift action by an intelligent and experienced attorney is imperative in order to preserve evidence, interview witnesses and immediately begin pursuing any and all responsible parties.”

We have numerous other 6-figure settlements within 30 days. While these results are atypical and do not predict future outcomes, justice in these cases helped bring about closure and a swift sense of justice for the families.”
