A man with multiple gunshot wounds was found lying near the scene of a crash in Fallbrook Thursday afternoon.
Deputies first responded to a crash near De Luz Road and Harris Road in Fallbrook, and found an unoccupied vehicle crashed in the canyon, according to the San Diego County Sheriff's Department.
While investigating the crash, a woman came forward and said she saw a man lying near the crash scene with apparent gunshot wounds.
She drove the man to the hospital so he could be treated for his injuries, she said.
Detectives responded to the hospital and determined the man was connected to the vehicle crash.
However, it is unclear at this point how the man sustained the gunshot wounds, and detectives are still investigating the incident.
