A plastic bottle filled with an unknown liquid exploded after being tossed from a vehicle in Carlsbad, which prompted authorities to call in a Hazmat unit, police officials said today.
Someone called police shortly before 10 p.m. Saturday and told police that an object thrown from a vehicle in the 6700 block of Camphor Place near Camino de las Ondas exploded and made a loud noise, police officials said. Responding officers found an opened plastic bottle with an unknown liquid spilling out in the roadway, authorities said. It was later deemed a destructive device.
Fire and San Diego County Hazmat personnel were summoned to handle the liquid, police officials said. No one was injured and no damage was reported, police said. Police officials said the only suspect description was possibly a white SUV that sped off southbound on Camphor Place toward Camino de las Ondas.
Anyone with information in the explosion was asked to call police.
