SAN DIEGO (KGTV) – Two teens were seriously injured Tuesday night after a two-vehicle crash at a Rancho Bernardo intersection.

According to San Diego police, the crash occurred just after 9:30 p.m. at the intersection of Rancho Bernardo Road and Cresta Drive.

Police said a Kia Spectra was traveling southbound on Cresta Drive when it stopped at a stop sign at Rancho Bernardo Road. The Kia proceeded just as a Ford F-150, traveling eastbound on Rancho Bernardo Road, approached the intersection.

The Ford struck the Kia on the passenger side, and police said a 17-year-old girl sitting in the Kia's front seat suffered a fractured leg that required surgery. A 16-year-old girl sitting in the Kia's backseat sustained a fractured right hip.

Police did not immediately say if the Kia’s 17-year-old male driver and the Ford’s 36-year-old male driver were hurt in the collision.

According to police, DUI is not suspected in the crash, but the incident is under investigation.
