OCEANSIDE, Calif. (AP) - Authorities say a Marine suffered serious injuries after the Humvee he was riding in lost control and slammed into a freeway center divider in San Diego County.

California Highway Patrol Officer Jim Bettencourt says the Humvee struck a truck on Interstate 5 near Oceanside Sunday, lost control and veered across traffic lanes before smashing into the divider.

The driver of the Humvee, a fellow Marine, was taken to the hospital with moderate injuries.

Bettencourt told U-T San Diego (https://bit.ly/1v1ZeyL) that neither alcohol nor drugs were a factor in the crash. He said both Marines are in their 20s and stationed at Camp Pendleton.

The truck driver was not injured.
