Update on student car accident

Five international Palomar students injured in a deadly single-car accident Aug. 21 have been released from the hospital, according to school officials.

In a letter sent out Aug. 25 by school president Robert Deegan, Deegan said he has been in contact with the families of those involved. Out of respect of the families’ wishes, the school will not release the names of those involved in the accident.

“We know that many of you would like to reach out to these students, their families and loved ones,” Deegan wrote in the letter. “However, the families are asking for privacy at this most difficult time.”

Late Thursday Aug. 21, eight international students from the school were involved in a single-car accident on State Route 78 between El Camino Real and College Boulevard in Oceanside.

The car had veered off the highway into an embankment, then ran into a power pole, severing the pole in half. The driver and two passengers died on impact, with the five surviving students being transported to local hospitals.
