Car Slams Into Semi, Trapping Passenger of His Car and Fleeing: SDPD

A man driving a car slammed into a parked semi-truck, trapping a passenger in his car before he fled, San Diego Police (SDPD) said. 

The crash happened at approximately 2:50 p.m. Monday near Carmel Mountain Road and Conference Way in San Diego's Carmel Mountain neighborhood, police said. 

The man was driving a GMC at the time of the crash, though after he crashed, he fled. He later came back, police said. 

Police initially thought the car was stolen because it seemed suspicious: the plates were from out of state and the plates did not match the car, police said. However, the VIN matched the car, so police determined it was not stolen. 

No one involved suffered serious injuries. 

No other information was immediately available.
