Interstate 5 crash leaves one man dead

OCEANSIDE – A 69-year-old man was fatally injured in a single-vehicle crash off Interstate 5 near Camp Pendleton, authorities said today.

Nicholas Anthony Dicarlo of Carlsbad lost control of his southbound 2014 Lexus IS 350 north of Harbor Drive shortly after 2:30 p.m. Wednesday, Aug. 13, apparently due to a blown tire, according to the California Highway Patrol and the county Medical Examiner’s Office.

The sedan veered off the freeway and crashed into a tree, pinning Dicarlo in it, authorities said.

Emergency crews pried the driver out of the wreckage, and he was taken to Scripps Memorial Hospital La Jolla, where he was pronounced dead about two hours after the crash, CHP and Medical Examiner’s officials said.

    Nick was a man that I looked up to and admired. He was my mom’s soul mate, someone whom treated her like she was the only person in the world for him. This was a tragedy considering he had his car less then two weeks, which the front right tire blew 5 minutes from home. He will be missed since there is no one like him in the world. Love you Nick!
