A woman driving northbound on Oceanview Drive early Thursday evening lost control of her Saturn station wagon, went off the curve in front of the Little Creek Cove, careened back across both lanes, slammed into the western embankment, upended and then began rolling northbound in the southbound lane. One witness said she heard the accident and it sounded like the woman was way over the speed limit.
The woman was still in the driver’s seat when police and fire rescue units arrived. She was stabilized in her seat and gently pulled out and loaded onto a gurney and then put inside a Pac West Ambulance. She was transported to PCH with what were believed to be minor injuries.
An investigating officer said he was enroute to the hospital to continue his investigation to ascertain if there might have been something else involved besides speed.
Traffic was blocked for the better part of an hour until the wreck could be cleared.
