Lakeside man killed in Poway solo crash

Incident happened at Espola, Trailwind roads

POWAY, Calif. - An investigation was under way Thursday in Poway, where a Lakeside man died in a solo-vehicle crash, authorities said.

The crash occurred just before midnight at Espola and Trailwind roads and involved a white pickup truck, according to San Diego County sheriff's Lt. Clayton Lisk. No one else was hurt.

A witness driving behind the truck told Sheriff's deputies the vehicle was weaving in and out and being driven erratically. The truck eventually lost control, veered across lanes and slammed into a tree. Firefighters worked to extricate the man from the truck, but he died at the scene.

Deputies said it is unclear if drugs or alcohol played a role in the crash and their investestigation is ongoing.
