A major accident occurred Thursday morning in Poway, California. There are few details regarding the accident at this point, but police have reported one fatality.

The collision took place around 4:00 a.m. A fire truck was heading out to respond to a medical emergency that had been called in the northern San Diego County area.

A Honda was also on the road in the early hours. The two then collided in an intersection. As the Honda is significantly smaller than the truck, the driver and passenger were at much more risk for injury than the firefighters.

A female passenger of the vehicle was killed immediately after the impact. The male driver was injured and taken to the hospital. His current condition is unknown; however, at the scene, his injuries were deemed severe.

The firefighters were all fine after the accident, and did not report any injuries.

The cause of the accident, the cause of death, or the type of injuries that the driver sustained has not been reported at this time. The accident is still under heavy investigation.

This accident is quite tragic. No matter the severity of the crash, having two cars so diversely sized creates very dangerous situations.
