SAN DIEGO -- A driver who flipped his red Corvette Sunday on a San Diego freeway faces drunken driving charges, the California Highway Patrol said.
The single-vehicle crash happened at about 10 a.m. on southbound state Route 163 near the interchange with Interstate 15. Officers found the Corvette on its roof blocking two lanes of the roadway.
Witnesses told investigators that the Corvette was speeding and may have been racing another car when it went out of control.
Both the driver and a passenger were taken to a hospital with serious injuries, the CHP said. Their identities and conditions were not immediately known.
