A man driving a dump truck crashed through a fence in El Cajon Saturday night, leaving a major mess behind.

California Highway Patrol officials say the dump truck was towing a trailer loaded with equipment when it crashed through fields and fencing before smashing into a parked travel trailer at La Cresta Road and Greenfield Drive near Crest.

The driver sustained injuries and remains hospitalized. His current condition is unknown.

No one else was injured in the collision.

The dump truck was impounded at the scene. CHP officials say it will be inspected to determine whether it experienced a mechanical failure before the crash.
