On arrival they found a full size pick-up truck had impacted a southbound van. One patient had been removed and an off-duty SDPD officer had initiated CPR efforts for a pulseless male occupant in the van. On the arrival of Engine Company 2 (Eucalyptus Hills Station) they took over patient care and initiated advanced life support efforts.

Extensive resuscitative efforts failed to revive the victim. On the arrival of Truck Company 27 (Barona Fire Department) they assisted by evaluating a second patient that had significant complaints. The patient was transported by Lakeside Medic 3 (Lake Jennings Station) to Sharp Trauma in Clairemont.

The Lakeside Fire District received assistance from the Barona Fire Department.

The accident is currently under investigation by the CHP.
