Woman killed in Rancho Santa Fe car accident

A 24-year-old Rancho Santa Fe woman was killed Feb. 6 after her car struck a tree on the 5400 block of La Granada in Rancho Santa Fe, according to the California Highway Patrol (CHP).

The CHP reported that Cristina M. Elshahawi, 24, was driving on the 5400 block of La Granada and entering a left-hand curve in the roadway. For unknown reasons, she entered the eastbound lane, over-corrected to the right, and spun off the north road edge, according to the CHP. The car she was driving, a 2007 Mini Cooper, struck a tree about 2:50 p.m. where Elshahawi sustained major head trauma, the CHP reported.

Elshahawi was flown to Scripps Hospital La Jolla where she was pronounced dead at 3:52 p.m. Alcohol/drugs were not a factor in the accident, according to the CHP.

  1. The death rates due to car accidents are increasing. A woman got killed in a road accident when her car struck a tree. A moment of distraction can cause accident resulting in death and accident. The causes of accidents are still the same but we are not taking any strong steps for it.

    I take exception to Kilroy’s latest advertisement for One Paseo, a “Proposed mixed-use neighborhood village with something for everyone.” Part of it is accurate and part of it is not. What is not accurate is the “neighborhood village.” Del Mar is a village. Del Mar has public transportation. A “neighborhood village” is not a series of five-story-plus buildin […]
