RANCHO BERNARDO, Calif. (CNS) — A 28-year-old man died Sunday after his 2000 Lexus crashed into a parked vehicle on Rancho Bernardo Road.

The crash happened at 5:24 a.m. Sunday in the 12100 block of Rancho Bernardo Road, according to Officer Sarah Foster of the San Diego Police Department.

The man was driving eastbound when he veered to the right for unknown reasons and struck a parked vehicle.

The impact deployed the airbags, the officer said. The driver was taken to a hospital where he died of his injuries.

The crash caused the parked vehicle to travel forward and another five cars were hit in a chain reaction, Foster said.

Traffic units responded and were handling the investigation.
