2 Accidents Back Up Traffic at I-5 Palm Avenue Exit

In two separate incidents, two woman, one on a bike and one on a motorcycle, were hit by cars near Interstate 5 and Palm Avenue. The woman on a bike was trapped underneath a car for a period of time.

Traffic backed up at the southbound Interstate 5 Palm Avenue exit Friday afternoon after two separate accidents, including one in which a bicycle rider was hit by a car near the corner of Palm and Saturn Boulevard, authorities said.

A woman was riding her bike against traffic around 1:30 p.m. near the Southland Plaza Shopping Center when she was hit by the car and trapped underneath the vehicle for a period of time, according to a San Diego Police Department watch commander.

The unidentified woman suffered head injuries and was transported to the hospital.

In a separate incident about 2:45 p.m. near the Palm Avenue exit on Interstate 5, a woman on a motorcycle was hit by a Ford Expedition, said Larry Landeros with California Highway Patrol. The motorcycle would land on top of her, and she suffered injuries to her legs.

there was a junkie living on ocean lane selling crack & heroin ...we'd have bums hanging out, needles and vomit on the lane...the neighbors went to the landlord , but the landlord refused to control the junkies....their 'policy' is to take no action ''until there is an arrest''... so we called the sheriff's every time we saw them gathering - i called so many times i would ask for a 'junkie sweep on ocean lane' and dispatch would know exactly what i was talking about...they made dozens of arrests ... ...and i turned into code compliance 17 city and state code violations on the property - with 12 pages of color pictures... this city double tickets - if the sheriff's dept is called the city tickets the tenant and the landlord....1st ticket $100, 2nd ticket $200, 3rd ticket $400... if the tenant violates code compliance the landlord is also ticketed....i told dave garcie to tell jerry bice that i'm going track every property he owns and manages and write them up for everything i can find....i can find a lot.... .....no more junkies on ocean lane...

Just to clear the air. The young lady who got hit is a close friend of my family and I. She was coming down the hill and her brakes went out and she had no way of stopping. That's what happend, it was an ACCIDENT! No drugs or anything like it, just bad luck. She is recovering fine but her the extent of her leg injury is not known yet. I feel for the driver as well as it must have been horrifying to hit someone and have them pinned under the car. I do believe that the City and shopping center owner should really think about providing an alternate exit as a way of helping to make the center more accessible. Libi, thanks for keeping an eye on our city even when those who are paid to fail. Jack

I always thought the City of Imperial Beach limit on the east side started at 15thst. According to Mapquest it is somewhere between 16th &18th st..at the veary least east of 18th street is South San Diego City limit. http://www.mapquest.com/maps?address=825+Imperial+Beach+Blvd&city=Imperial+Beach&state=CA&zipcode=91932&redirect=true City of San Diego is responsible for that traffic cluster at Saturn and Palm ave. Get your posse up and ride to San Diego City Council
