California Highway Patrol officers found the truck with extensive front-end damage at Buckman Springs Road and Lake Morena Drive south of Interstate 8.

The agent driving the vehicle was rushed to Sharp Memorial Hospital in Kearny Mesa.

CHP officers said the agent, who they identified only as a 26-year-old man, suffered a broken right hand and some facial lacerations.

The cause of the crash is under investigation. CHP said the road was wet from ongoing rain at the time of the crash.
