Three people were hospitalized after a car crash in Sorrento Valley early Saturday morning.
Alcohol was a factor in the collision, the San Diego Police Department said.
A 73-yearold man was driving in a Toyota Venza with his 64-year-old wife when they were struck by a Ford Escape, according to SDPD.
The 33-year-old Escape driver was heading north on Camino Santa Fe when he collided with the couple on Mira Mesa Boulevard, SDPD said.
The older man’s hip and ribs were fractured, police said. The woman was treated for internal injuries.
The 33-year-old suffered cuts on his face.
Police believed the Escape driver may have been under the influence of alcohol.
The crash happened just before 4 a.m.
SDPD Traffic Division is currently investigating.
No other information was available.
The San Diego Police Department will have extra enforcement at local religious buildings after a shooting at a Pittsburgh synagogue that left at least eight dead Saturday morning.
Chief of Police David Nisleit tweeted a few hours after the shooting to confirm the increased presence out of “an abundance of caution.”
NBC 7 reached out to police departments in Oceanside, El Cajon, and La Mesa. All said they were not dispatching extra enforcement to local synagogues or other places of worship at this time.
The San Diego County Sheriff's Department also said they would not have an increased presence.

A suspect is in custody after a car shooting left a Navy man dead in Mountain View early Saturday.
Curtis Adam, 21, saw what he believed to be a stranded driver on Interstate 15 near the Interstate 5 on-ramp, so he pulled over to help, according to the San Diego Police Department.
When Adam got out of his car, he was shot, SDPD Lt. Anthony Dupree said.
He was with his girlfriend who quickly called police around 2:20 a.m.
Caltrans spotted the suspect's car on Interstate 5 near 32nd Street. Officers then arrived at the scene to arrest the two suspects.
Adam was taken to UC San Diego Medical Center where he later died.
There was no known relationship between Adam and the suspect, Dupree said.
SDPD initally reported that two suspects were taken into custody, but later said only one was in custody.
The southbound I-15 connector to northbound I-15 was temporarily shut down for police to investigate.
If anyone has information on the incident, they are asked to call CHP Homicide Unit at (619) 531-2293 or Crime Stoppers at (888) 580-8477.
An attack on a Pittsburgh synagogue Saturday in which multiple people were shot to death comes amid a sharp rise in anti-Semitism reported by a Jewish civil rights organization, particularly before the mid-term elections.
Far-right extremists have rallied before the elections next month to spread hate online, according to one report released on Friday by the Anti-Defamation League. There is a consistent pattern of harassment of Jewish Americans by white supremacists and neo-Nazis — much of it based on hateful stereotypes and conspiracies — and some of it is bleeding into more mainstream U.S. conservatism, it found.
George Soros, a billionaire, philanthropist and a Hungarian-born Jew, was one of the most frequent online targets by white nationalists. Soros — who received one of the pipe bombs that were sent over the past week to prominent Democrats and CNN — has been falsely accused of funding, among other things, the caravan of Central American migrants heading for the U.S. border, and of paying the women who confronted Republican senators about Brett Kavanaugh's nomination to the U.S. Supreme Court. Those charges and others, some spread by mainstream politicians, have been debunked.
And Jewish journalists faced an onslaught of online persecution and overtly anti-Semitic tweets between 2015 and 2016, the Anti-Defamation League found. The five most common words in the account bios of those sending the harassing tweets were Trump, conservative, white, nationalist and America, according to the report. Reporters received threatening messages that included references to concentration camps, gas chambers and Hitler.
"Prior to the election of President Donald Trump, anti-Semitic harassment and attacks were rare and unexpected, even for Jewish Americans who were prominently situated in the public eye," the report said. "Following his election, anti-Semitism has become normalized and harassment is a daily occurrence."
The shooting Saturday morning took place near the Tree of Life Synagogue in Pittsburgh while a circumcision celebration, known as a bris, was taking place, congregants told MSNBC. In addition to the fatalities, two other victims had critical injuries and four police officers, three of whom were shot, had non-life-threatening injuries, according to the Pittsburgh public safety director.
The suspect, 46-year-old Robert Bowers of Pittsburgh, who is in custody, was armed with an AR-15-style rifle and multiple handguns, NBC News reported. What appeared to be his account on a social media site called Gab, contained multiple anti-Semitic messages, including ones aimed at a Jewish-American organization that helps refugees, as well as comments critical of Trump.
The shooting will be prosecuted as a hate crime, according to a tweet from the Pittsburgh Department of Public Safety.
"A staggering expansion of online harassment coincided with, and arguably fomented, the increase in offline anti-Semitism," the ADL report said. "Fringe Internet communities, such as 4chan, 8chan, and Gab allowed for the propagation of such ideas, which quickly spread to Twitter, Reddit, and other mainstream online communities."
Gab said in a statement that it contacted law enforcement quickly with the information from Bowers account.
Jonathan Greenblatt, the CEO of the ADL, tweeted that the organization was working "to push back on prejudice."
"We are devastated," he wrote. "Jews targeted on Shabbat morning at synagogue, a holy place of worship, is unconscionable."
In the same statement, Gab reiterated that they have a zero tolerance policy on terrorism and violence.
"Gab unequivocally disavows and condemns all acts of terrorism and violence."
Trump tweeted, "God Bless All!," and later said: "It's a terrible, terrible thing what's going on with hate in our country, frankly, and all over the world," the president said. "It's a violent world. You think when you're over it, it just goes away but then it comes back in the form of a madman, a wacko."
Later, during a previously scheduled event in Indiana, Trump said that anti-Semitism "represents one of the ugliest and darkest features of human history. The vile hate-filled poison of anti-Semitism must be condemned and confronted."
A 2017 study of the Greater Pittsburgh Jewish community released by Brandeis University found that more than two-thirds of the community had some concern about local anti-Semitism.
Another report from the ADL in May found that about 3 million Twitter users posted or reposted at least 4.2 million anti-Semitic tweets over a 12-month period ending Jan. 28, according to The Associated Press.
And in February, the ADL reported that the number of anti-Semitic incidents — harassment, vandalism, desecration of Jewish graves, physical assaults and bomb threats against Jewish institutions — rose nearly 60 percent last year over 2016, the largest single-year increase on record.
There were 1,986 incidents reported across the United States. For the first time since 2010, an incident had occurred in every state in the country.
The sharp rise was in part due to an increase in incidents in schools and on college campuses, it wrote.

First responders surround the Tree of Life Synagogue, rear center, in Pittsburgh, where a shooter opened fire Saturday, Oct. 27, 2018, wounding four police officers and causing "multiple casualties" according to police.
A wrong-way driver killed himself and another near Temecula after a police chase ended in a crash Friday night.
A 23-year-old man was driving on the wrong side of Interstate 15 from Deer Springs Road around 11 p.m., the California Highway Patrol said.
CHP failed to stop the driver near State Route 76. He continued north in the southbound lanes.
The man, in a Hyundai Elantra, then crashed into a Honda Civic near the Rainbow Valley Boulevard overcrossing at around 11:15 p.m., according to CHP.
The driver of the Civic was a 20-year-old woman from Lake Elsinore. She was pronounced dead at the crash site.
The 23-year-old from Murrieta was taken to Palomar Medical Center where he later died, CHP said.
Officers said he may have been impaired while driving.
All southbound I-15 lanes were closed until 2:30 a.m.
CHP is currently investigating.

An AMBER Alert was issued in San Diego just after 1 p.m. Saturday for an abducted child from Vancouver, Washington.
A 4-year-old girl was taken by her mother Thursday afternoon, and now local police are asking for help, according to KGW8 in Portland, Oregon.
The girl was on a court-supervised visit with her mother, Esmeralda Lopez, at the Vancouver Mall when she was taken, KGW8 said.
The 4-year-old's name is Aranza Lopez.
She was last seen wearing a long sleeve, dark blue shirt with a bulldog on the front, said KGW8. Aranza was also wearing pink pants and PAW Patrol shoes.
Esmeralda, 21, is also a person-of-interest in a robbery that occurred around the same time as the abduction.
She was last seen wearing a red and white striped soccer jersey.
Based on the mother's history, police fear for Aranza's safety.
The car Esmeralda was using was described as a red Chevrolet Cobalt.
It has a Washington license plate that reads “BLK1552.”
San Diego was one of 26 counties to issue the AMBER Alert, according to CHP.
There is no specific connection between the abduction and San Diego at this time, Escondido Police Lt. Ed Bennett. However, many counties south of Vancouver and along the coast were notified.
If anyone has information, call 911.

A man was shot in the leg near an auto shop in Logan Heights late Friday night.
The 41-year-old was looking over a fence that surrounded the auto shop near Franklin Avenue when he heard two gun shots, according to the San Diego Police Department.
He then returned to his car.
Shortly after, the suspect shot at the man twice, striking him in his left calf, SDPD said.
The 41-year-old then drove away.
The suspect was last seen getting into a grey Dodge Ram and driving northbound on Evans Street toward Imperial Avenue, according to SDPD.
The man was taken to a nearby hospital, where he is expected to recover, SDPD said.
The shooting occurred around 11:15 p.m.
The San Diego Police Central Division Detectives are investigating.
Robert Bowers, the Pennsylvania man accused of fatally shooting 11 people at a Pittsburgh synagogue Saturday morning, posted frequently online about conspiracy theories and made repeated threats to Jews.
He made a specific threat against Jews on the social network, Gab, just hours before allegedly conducting the attack.
In the post, Bowers said that the Hebrew Immigrant Aid Society, a humanitarian aid nonprofit group that provides assistance to refugees, brought immigrants to the United States to do violence against others.
“Screw your optics, I'm going in," he wrote.
Bowers also frequently posted about the migrant caravan, a group of several thousand refugees walking to the U.S.-Mexico border from Honduras to seek asylum.
Bowers anti-semitic posts and apparent contempt for the caravan are tied to a viral photo depicting refugees hopping onto the bed of a truck with a Star of David visible on the side.
Conspiracy theories about the image of the truck and anti-semitic comments from other users reposted by Bowers, are still visible on Gab.

People watch as first responders move through the Squirrel Hill neighborhood of Pittsburgh where a shooter opened fire during services at the Tree of Life Synagogue on Saturday, Oct. 27, 2018.
What started as a trickle of billing complaints surged into a flash flood of allegations raised about the city of San Diego’s Water Department. NBC 7 Responds' investigation into billing errors led to the discovery of faulty water meters and a lack of transparency over the city's multi-million-dollar smart meter program. Some of the team’s findings have led to the department taking corrective action. "Flood of Distrust" will give you an inside look at the investigative journey from start to finish.
Part One – Trust In: Water Bills
This story began in 2017 as customers across the city of San Diego began to question unexplainable high water bills. Those customers said the San Diego’s Public Utilities Department put the blame on them, but something didn’t seem right. That’s when NBC 7 Responds’ investigation began.
Part Two – Trust In: Water Meters
A customer’s water meter is the link between the utility and their home. When customers started questioning the accuracy of their water meter, NBC 7 Responds put the meters, and the city, to the test.
Part Three – Trust In: Smart Meter Program
Six years ago, the Public Utilities Department committed to replace every water meter in the city with new, wireless smart meters. But where are things now? NBC 7 Responds looks into the program’s costs and how it will impact customers moving forward.
Part Four – Winning Back Customer Trust
After a year of internal investigations and audits, what can the city do to gain back the trust of San Diego’s ratepayers? NBC 7 Responds looks at customer service and what needs to change in the future.
A wily coyote this one was not.
It was trapped upside in Ramona on Wednesday after its foot was caught on the fence in what appears to be a failed attempt to jump over a fence.
Many coyotes can jump higher than five feet. This one, however, got stuck on what appears to be four-foot fence.
A passer-by spotted the trapped coyote on Royal Vista Drive and quickly called County Animal Services.
Animal Services officers restrained the coyote while the passer-by cut the wire of the fence.
Once the coyote’s foot was freed, it was taken to the Fund for Animals Wildlife Center a little more than 3 miles away.
There, a veterinarian inspected the coyote, which, other than the injured leg and paw (and pride?), seems none the worse for wear.
The coyote is expected to make a full recovery and will soon be released.
The man who was airlifted to a San Diego hospital after the fishing boat he was on collided with a yacht of the coast of Imperial Beach has died, the U.S. Coast Guard said Saturday.
The collision happened around 7:50 p.m. Friday about 9 miles off the coast, near Mexico's maritime border, when the 332-foot yacht, Attessa IV, crashed into the 65-foot Prowler with 29 people on it, the agency said.
The crash caused extensive damage to the starboard quarter of the sports fishing boat, disabling it and critically injuring the man and several others, the Coast Guard said.
It took the Coast Guard about an hour to arrive on the scene and airlifted the man to UC San Diego Medical Center-Hillcrest where he died Saturday morning, U.S. Coast Guard Petty Officer Joel Guzman said.
The man's name, age and where he is from are unknown at this time, he said.
Seventeen people, including two with injuries, were taken to San Diego by the Coast Guard's 45-foot Response Boat-Medium.
The remaining 10 passengers were returned to San Diego aboard the Attessa IV. The captain of the Prowler remained on board to wait for a commercial salvage boat to tow it to shore, according to Coast Guard.
The Coast Guard's Sea Otter, which was diverted to assist with the rescue effort, remained on scene with the Prowler.
The cause of the collision was still under investigation.

A 39-year-old woman sustained head injuries in an attempted home invasion robbery in Otay Mesa early Saturday morning, police said.
Around 1:30 a.m., the woman, who was home with her 44-year-old husband, answered the door of her home in the 1500 block of Oro Vista where a man asked for a woman, San Diego police Officer Steve Bourasa said.
When the homeowner said the woman does not live there, the man then went to the back the home where he was joined by another man. Both men jumped the patio fence and began banging on the rear patio door, he said.
One of the men pulled out a gun and fired one shot into the door, shattering the glass and enter the home, the officer said.
“Once inside, the male confronted the wife and demanded money,” Boursasa said. When she stated she did not have any money the male punched her several times.”
The husband, meanwhile, had gone out the front door the back where he saw the other man who was standing on the lawn. That man pointed a gun at the husband and then fled, the officer said.
The husband then ran inside the house the other man was beating on her. The husband punched the intruder several times, chasing him off, Bourasa said.
The suspect ran off, jumping over the patio fence.
The wife was taken to an area hospital where she treated for head injuries.
Nothing inside the house was taken, police said.
The suspects are described as being Hispanic between 20-30 years old. One was about 5-foot-7 with a normal build, wearing a black hooded sweatshirt with black pants and glasses. The other was about 6-foot-2 with a normal build, wearing a dark hooded sweatshirt.
Anyone with information was urged to contact the San Diego Police Department’s Robbery Division or Crime Stoppers at (888) 580-8477.
SWAT detained 10 people in Bonita early Sunday morning after gunshots were heard in the area.
Deputies were first notified of gunshot noises near homes on Robinwood Road, according to San Diego Sheriff’s Department Lt. Michael McNeil.
The call came in just before 4 a.m.
When deputies arrived, they heard several gunshots and called in SWAT, McNeil said.
Officials then searched the area and found a man hiding behind an apartment complex less than a half mile away. He was detained, according to McNeil.
Nine others associated with the house where the gunshot noises originated were also detained, McNeil said.
No injuries were reported at this time.
No other information was available.
Two robberies were reported within two hours of each other in College West early Sunday morning.
Just after 2 a.m., police responded to a robbery near Faber Way and Prosperity Lane, according to San Diego Police Department Officer Robert Heims.
About five to six men stole cell phones from an unknown amount of people, Heims said.
At 4:15 a.m., police responded to an armed robbery near Montezuma Road and College Avenue, said SDPD Officer Sarah Foster.
The suspects had a gun, but it is currently unclear what they took, Foster said.
The suspects left in a white car, according to Foster.
The two incidents were less than a mile apart.
At this time, there is no evidence that the robberies were related.
No other information was available.

Two people were caught on surveillance video taking a power inverter from a man’s garage Friday morning in College West.
Brent Warren posted a free ad on Craigslist Thursday offering wood and miscellaneous items to anyone who wants them. He and his wife recently sold their house and are moving.
“We saw this couple drive by, and they looked at the dumpster [full of stuff from the ad],” Warren said.
They stopped and asked permission to go through the dumpster for a few pieces of wood, Warren told NBC 7. Warren said that was okay.
While the man and woman were loading up supplies from the dumpster, Warren’s wife was watching them on their Ring surveillance camera.
At first, the two fished stuff out of the dumpster, and Warren and his wife didn’t think anything of it.
“[Then] they huddled together, whispered a few things, and then manhandled my 90 pound inverter and threw it in the back of the truck and sped off as I tried to chase them down,” Warren said.
The inverter was left in Warren’s garage, where he said he “didn’t think anyone would touch it.”
The inverter was valued at $2,500, according to Warren. “It’s an expensive piece of equipment.”
A power inverter takes energy collected by solar panels and turns it into another form of energy that can be used by commercial electrical grids, Warren told NBC 7.
Luckily, Warren said he has an extra one.
However, the inverter wasn’t the only expensive item that was taken.
“We looked back at the video, saw they grabbed an iPad that made its way in there by accident,” Warren said. “So, they might have some personal info that we don’t want them to have.”
This was unusual for the neighborhood on Campanile Drive, according to Warren.
“Not the area for it. We don’t have this kind of thing,” Warren told NBC 7. “Worst thing we ever had was a drunk college kid once. No theft. No nothing.”
Warren and his wife believe the Craigslist ad could have attracted the couple.
“Sure want to be able to trust people these day, can’t trust them anymore,” Warren said.
He plans on pressing charges against the two.
Warren’s parents bought their house in 1965, so although Warren is moving, the area has been home to him for decades.

A Circle K store was robbed by four men in Kearny Mesa Sunday morning, according to the San Diego Police Department.
The four first entered the store without buying anything, SDPD said.
Eight minutes later, they returned and robbed the lone clerk, according to SDPD.
A 23-year-old woman was working at the time.
One of the men pointed a three- to four-inch knife at her abdomen and demanded cigarettes, SDPD said.
The clerk gave them “numerous” packs of cigarettes and cigars, according to SDPD.
The four then fled on foot.
The woman was not injured.
Police described the four men as in their early 20s.
Three of them were seen wearing black hoodies with white strings and black pajama pants. The fourth one was wearing a black and red leather jacket, SDPD said.
Officers said two of the men were about 5 feet 3 inches tall.
The incident took place on Balboa Avenue at around 8:45 a.m.
It’s unclear the total loss of the robbery at this time, SDPD said.

Dozens of Boston-area college students are without a home after a massive fire Saturday.
Some 114 residents in all -- including up to 70 students from area colleges -- were displaced by the fire that ripped through a 5-story building in Boston’s Fenway neighborhood.
Officials responded to 104 Hemenway Street, which is home to Northeastern University and Berklee College of Music students, just after 3:15 p.m. Saturday.
Around eight residents and one firefighter were taken to the hospital for non-life threatening injuries, Boston EMS said.
“There were no alarms going off in our building, so we had no idea what was going on. I just heard glass shattering,” one young woman said.
Northeastern student Adam Petricca caught heavy smoke on camera when he was taking a nearby alley to get home.
A roof collapsing and harsh weather were big challenges while firefighters tried to battle the blaze.
“The wind keeps pushing it one way then pushing it the other way, so as you see every once in a while the wind will shift it comes down at you then it shifts another way and goes away,” Fire Commissioner Joe Finn said Saturday.
All of this happened on parents weekend at Northeastern.
"I think it's scary for a lot of people even parents who have kids around here, not necessarily in this building. But the Fire Department did an incredible job," said Mayor Marty Walsh, who was on scene Saturday.
Mayor Walsh says his administration is working with the colleges to make sure the students have alternate housing.
Fire officials remained on scene overnight to hit "hot spots."
Investigators were in the building Sunday morning, trying to determine the cause of the fire but say it is not considered suspicious at this time.
The suspect identified Sunday in the murder of an active duty Navy sailor in Mountain View on Saturday was also involved another shooting minutes before, police said.
Brandon Acuna, 21, was accused in the shooting death of Curtis Adams, 21, early Saturday morning, police said.
Acuna was also involved in another shooting 10 minutes earlier near the 600 block of Boundary Street in Mount Hope, police said.
He allegedly shot at a man who interrupted his attempt to break into the man's car, according to police.
Police said Adams was driving southbound on Interstate 15 around 2:20 a.m. when he saw what he thought was a stranded driver near the northbound Interstate 5 on-ramp and pulled over to help.
When Adams got out of his car and approached the stranded vehicle, he was shot, Lt. Anthony Dupree said.
He was with his girlfriend at the time who quickly called 911. Adams was taken to UC San Diego Medical Center where he died.
The vehicle Acuna was in sped off and he was taken into custody when California Highway Patrol spotted the car on northbound I-5, near 32nd Street and contacted SDPD.
Acuna was booked into San Diego County Central Jail on charges of first-degree murder and second-degree burglary and held with no bail.
Acuna has a long criminal history dating back to 2015 when he was 18 years old, according to court records.
It was unclear why Acuna shot Adams. The investigations into both incidents are ongoing, police said.

Two San Diego veterans win big on "Wheel of Fortune" during the popular game show’s Veterans Week.
NBC7 spoke with Mark Carpowich and Coast Guard Veteran Michael Dougherty about their wins at Sony Studios in Los Angeles where "Wheel of Fortune" is taped.
Mark Carpowich who served in navy intelligence tells NBC7 he has been preparing for this since he was a kid.
“This has been a nightly ritual for me forever since the days back in the 80s when you had to pick out prizes and stuff,” he said.
He won a trip to Fiji and a new car along with cash on the fast-paced show.
“The best part of this is that I got married less than a year ago and my wife and I didn’t have the opportunity to take a honeymoon so this will be our honeymoon,” Carpowich said.
Dougherty also came away with a win, taking home cash and a trip.
“[It's] still a little surreal I get to go home and kind of take it all in tonight," he said. "I think when I’m in the Caribbean is really when it’s going to kick in.”
