SAN DIEGO (KGTV) -- One person was taken to the hospital with serious injuries after being struck by a car in Pacific Beach Monday afternoon.

According to police, the crash happened near the intersection of Mission Bay Drive and Garnet Avenue at 1:18 p.m.

Witnesses told police the silver BMW was traveling fast before hitting a 67-year-old pedestrian in a raised median along Mission Bay Drive.

The car then continued into the busy intersection and hit a Ford Fusion before flipping over and coming to a stop in the Enterprise Rental lot.

The pedestrian was rushed to the hospital with life-threatening head injuries, a broken pelvis and internal injuries.

The 40-year-old driver of the BMW was uninjured and a woman in the Ford Fusion only had a complaint of pain.

At this time, it's unclear whether or not drugs or alcohol played a role in the crash.
