CHULA VISTA (CNS) - A driver died Friday after being extricated from a vehicle that had apparently been involved in a rollover crash in Chula Vista, authorities said.
Officers and paramedics were dispatched to the 700 block of Olympic Parkway shortly before noon, to calls of a serious traffic accident. That's where they found a single vehicle that had come to rest upright in a ravine next to the street, police said.
There was one person inside the vehicle with serious injuries who was rushed to a trauma center at a local hospital, but later died.
The wreck caused all westbound traffic on Olympic Parkway to be diverted onto Heritage Road for hours, according to police.
