    Police: Pot smoking may have caused accident in Scripps Ranch - CBS News 8 - San Diego, CA News Station - KFMB Channel 8

    I am in Indonesia half a world away but got a call from a reporter who had seen some photos I took of Bullfighters car. He said that Jon W (Bullfighter) had been hit in his 356 speedster in a head-on collision and was in serious condition taken to the hospital along with his girlfriend.

    He was hit by a DUI.

    If you are in San Diego - look in on him at Scripps La Jolla. If you know his family, please give them a call.

    I am very saddened to hear this news. He is one of the really good guys out there.

    What a damn tragedy! Never have met Bullfighter but felt like I know him from my years of reading his posts back when I used to own a 308. Hope for a speedy recovery Jon !

    I can't do much from here. I put out a note on his Facebook so hopefully family will be alerted.

    Reporter said they were in very bad shape.

    Police said the drug pipe was still hot in the other car...

    Oh wow. I personally don't Bullfighter, but I do know that he's been a highly respected resource and gentleman here on FChat. My sincere hope is that he and his girlfriend heal quickly and are released from the hospital soon.

    Terrible news. These vintage cars are so nostalgic and fun, but not so good when there's an accident. :(

    Hoping for a full recovery.

    How awful .. I'm so sorry to hear that news. He remains the consummate 328 owner even though he no longer owns one. I wish Jon and his lady a speedy recovery.
