A 22-year-old Escondido woman who was trapped in a submerged car in a swimming pool for about 10 minutes last week has been declared brain dead.
Ashley Garcia never regained consciousness after the speeding car she was a passenger in went out of control along Calavo Drive near Nordahl Road in an unincorporated area west of Escondido Monday night…
Residents along Calavo Drive said the short road has been the scene of numerous accidents over the years. Locals refer to it as the “roller coaster road” because of the dips and hills which tempt drivers to speed for the thrill of briefly going airborne.
