A passenger died and two others were injured after the driver slammed her vehicle into several parked cars in Mission Beach, police said.

According to officers, the collision involving a BMW carrying three occupants happened in the 900 block of West Mission Bay Drive at around 2:45 a.m.

The 35-year-old driver of the vehicle was traveling westbound on West Mission Bay Drive when, for unknown reasons, she veered to the right and struck multiple parked cars.

Police say the driver sustained neck injuries. A 19-year-old passenger suffered chest pain while 35-year-old rear passenger Shiden Jabdan died from serious head injuries.

All three were transported to local trauma centers for treatment.

No one was in the parked cars at the time of the collision and no other injuries were reported.

The investigation on this crash is ongoing and felony charges may be filed against the driver. The driver was given a DUI test at the scene and police are working to determine whether alcohol played a factor in the incident.
