TYPE OF INCIDENT: SINGLE VEHICLE FATAL COLLISION

DATE AND TIME OF INCIDENT: 10/04/19 at 2:24 AM

LOCATION OF INCIDENT: 2800 Fletcher Parkway, El Cajon 

RESUME OF INCIDENT:

On 10/04/19 at approximately 2:24 am. El Cajon police officers and Heartland fire personnel responded to the 2800 block of Fletcher Parkway in El Cajon reference reports of a vehicle which had struck a tree in the center median. Upon arrival police found one vehicle, a white 2019 Nissan Kick engulfed in flames. Heartland fire was able to extinguish the fire and a single occupant was found deceased in the vehicle.

After a preliminary investigation of the scene and talking to witnesses, it appears the Nissan was traveling westbound on Fletcher Parkway when it drifted onto the raised center divider and struck a tree. As the vehicle came to rest, it caught fire and also ignited the adjacent tree. The fires were quickly extinguished shortly after firefighters arrived on scene. It is unknown at this time if drugs or alcohol were a factor in this collision and no other vehicles or persons were involved.

The El Cajon Police Department is asking anyone with information regarding this collision to call (619) 579-3311.
