SAN DIEGO - Three people were hospitalized Tuesday after a drug deal led to a fight, stabbing and then a car crash in Scripps Ranch.
The crash occurred at about 5:45 p.m. on Scripps Ranch Boulevard at Pomerado Road.
Three men were inside the car when a drug deal was in progress. Police said a fight broke out inside the car and that during the scuffle, the front passenger stabbed a person in the backseat.
The car then crashed through several trees before slamming into a light pole. Witnesses ran to help until the people inside the car began brawling in the street.
"Well, the dude was like, MMA (mixed martial arts)… just going crazy," said witness Jacob Marsaglia.
Witness Nicholas Cronk said, "One of the guys grabbed a bunch of marijuana and a wad of money and started running towards us."
Marsaglia said, "He just said, 'Someone jacked me, someone jacked me' and I just said, like, 'Oh dude, that sucks, you need to come down here though, you're hurt.' Then he said, 'Dude, hold my weed for me, hold my weed for me.'"
Marsaglia added, "He got a pretty deep cut on the ribs and, like, I could see his muscle and stuff and then his face was messed up."
