A 52-year-old Escondido man died in a car accident in Poway Wednesday after his vehicle struck a brick wall and then a metal pole, the San Diego County Sheriff’s Department said.
The crash happened just after 8 a.m. in the 13200 block of Pomerado Road.
Investigators say the man was driving his 2004 Nissan Sentra northbound when, for unknown reasons, the car veered off the road and onto a sidewalk. The driver struck a brick wall along the roadway, followed by a metal pole.
When emergency crews arrived, they found the driver non-responsive. He was wearing his seatbelt, officials said.
The man was transported to Pomerado Hospital, where he was pronounced dead a short time later.
The crash is under investigation.
The medical examiner’s office will determine the driver’s official cause of death, as well as his identity. Those details are forthcoming.
