SAN DIEGO (KGTV) -- A man died Sunday morning after California Highway Patrol says his car flipped over before slamming into a tree in National City.
According to CHP, the crash happened around 3 a.m. on I-805 south near Plaza Boulevard.
Officers say the vehicle was speeding when the driver lost control and flipped several times before hitting the tree.
At this time, it’s unclear if drugs or alcohol played a role in the crash.
The crash was the second deadly collision on the 805 south in two days. Saturday morning, a wrong-way driver crashed into another vehicle on I-805 south near the I-8 connector.
According to CHP, both drivers were taken to the hospital with life-threatening injuries. The wrong-way driver later died at the hospital.
