1 dead after car slams into home in Chula Vista

CHULA VISTA, Calif. - A man is dead after the car he was driving slammed into the back of a home in Chula Vista.

The incident was reported at about 4:10 p.m. Saturday in the 600 block of Carla Avenue near East J Street when a white Nissan crashed into the home, which sustained major damage.

"I heard what sounded like engines going at a high rate of speed and then I heard screeching ... sounded like a car just lost control somewhere around this area and this there was a big bang," a witness told 10News.

Witnesses initially told 10News that the crash may have been a result of two cars racing, but Chula Vista police now say there was only one car involved and that racing is not believed to have been a factor in the crash.

Police say that speed was likely a factor and that the driver may have had a possible medical issue when the crash occurred.

No one was inside the home at the time of the crash.
