A wrong-way driver suspected of being under the influence of drugs crashed into a group of bicyclists on Fiesta Island Tuesday, leaving one rider with broken bones and internal injuries and seven others less severely hurt.
The woman driving the Geo Prism that plowed through the group of 20 riders shortly before 6:30 p.m. in the 1000 block of Fiesta Island Road was also injured, San Diego Police Officer Dino Delimitros said.
The driver, 49, is expected to face drugged driving charges on her release from a hospital, Delimitros said. Her name was not immediately released.
Of the eight riders who were injured, one suffered broken ribs, a fractured vertebrae and internal injuries, Delimitros said. The other seven riders sustained minor to moderate injuries, he said.
