June 9, 2021 (Campo) – A Campo man, 35, suffered major injuries and is under arrest following a crash early this morning in Campo that killed a female passenger, 26, also from Campo.

The motorist was driving a 2004 Toyota Scion XA northbound on Buckman Springs Road, north of Lake Morena Drive when the vehicle drifted onto the shoulder and struck a mailbox.

“As the driver attempted to regain control, the vehicle veered across the roadway, struck a tree on the west shoulder and overturned,” says Officer Travis Garrow with the California Highway Patrol. “It is believed neither the driver nor passenger were wearing a seatbelt and both occupants were ejected out of the vehicle.”

June 19, 2011 (LaMesa) --The La Mesa Police Department conducted a Court Sting Operation at the East County branch of the San Diego Superior Court on Thursday, June 16, 2011.  Our main focus was to identify those drivers who continue to drive even after having their license suspended as the result of a prior DUI arrest.  The detail was operational for about two and a half hours.  In the end, 10 subjects were contacted and 8 of them were found to be driving on a suspended or revoked license.  All of them were issued a citation and their cars were impounded and then placed on a hold due to the driver having a suspended license.
