An Oceano teenager suffered major injuries when the car she was riding in steered off the road and hit a tree, the Highway Patrol said.

According to a news release from CHP Ofc. Miguel Alvarez, at 4:55 p.m. Tuesday, March 15 a 2003 Nissan was traveling on Noyes Road just west of Sunray Place in the hills east of Pismo Beach, and driven by Hector Resendiztabares, 18 of Oceano, when for an undisclosed reason the car drove off the right side of the road, hit two wooden post road signs and then a tree. The car came to rest on the dirt embankment, Ofc. Alvarez said. 

Resendiztabares was not injured but a 16-year-old girl riding in the backseat was “unconscious and unresponsive” at the scene. She was taken to Sierra Vista Hospital and was being treated for undisclosed major injuries.

Ofc. Alvarez said alcohol or drugs do not “appear to be a factor in this collision.” No arrests were made. The teenage girl’s name was not released
