Edward Cline, 52, was driving west on Fletcher Parkway at a high speed when he ran a red light at Jackson Drive shortly before 8:30 p.m., according to the San Diego County Medical Examiner's Office.   

Entering the intersection, Cline's vehicle collided with a northbound 2016 Ford Mustang, overturned and rolled side-over-side several times. Cline, who was not wearing a seatbelt, was ejected from his car and died at the scene, La Mesa Police Lt. Greg Runge said.

Medics took the other driver to a hospital for treatment of non-life-threatening injuries.

Intoxication is not believed to have been a factor in the accident, Runge said.
