    The 49-year old male driver of a Honda Element appeared to have lost control at the intersection of Steele Canyon Road and Campo Road, also known as SR 94 around 4 a.m.

    Police said the man was driving at a very high speed off of SR 94.

    When the car stopped, it was buried inside the Ranch Feed and Pet Supply and had caused extensive damage to the front of the building.

    A passer-by found the man and called 911. Medics attempted to revive the man, but to no avail.

    CHP officers and San Diego County Sheriff’s deputies investigated the cause of the crash. Prior to the investigation, officials believed early signs indicated the crash may have been caused intentionally.

    A medical examiner said a contributing factor to the man's death was clinical depression.
