DATE AND TIME OF INCIDENT: 02/16/2020 @ 1:49 PM

LOCATION OF INCIDENT: 1200 N Second St, El Cajon

RESUME OF INCIDENT:

On 02/16/2020 at approximately 1:49 PM., El Cajon police officers and Heartland fire personnel responded to the 1200 N Second St in El Cajon reference reports of a vehicle which had struck a tree in the center median. Upon arrival police found one vehicle, a black 1998 Ford Explorer, with a single occupant deceased inside.

After a preliminary investigation of the scene and talking to witnesses, it appears the Ford was traveling northbound on N Second St when it drifted onto the raised center divider and struck a tree. The identity of the driver, a mid-thirty year old male is known but identification is being withheld pending notification of family. 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 roadway will be closed for a prolonged period of time, please avoid the area.

The El Cajon Police Department is reminding everyone to designate a sober driver this holiday weekend, and asking anyone with information regarding this collision to call (619) 579-3311.
