SAN DIEGO (CNS) — A 29-year-old man was gravely injured Tuesday when the van he was driving crashed into a parked big rig on a Mountain View-area roadside.
The man lost control of his 2008 Ford F250 for unknown reasons while heading west in the 3800 block of Imperial Avenue shortly before 2:30 p.m., according to the San Diego Police Department.
The van veered across the street and smashed into the back of the tractor-trailer, which was parked facing west next to the eastbound lanes while the driver was making deliveries, SDPD Officer John Buttle said.
Paramedics took the man to a hospital for treatment of life- threatening trauma.
No other injuries were reported.
