A man was killed Sunday when his 1998 Ford Explorer drifted onto a center median and hit a tree, police said.
The accident happened about 1:50 p.m. in the 1200 block of North Second Street, said Lt. Jason Taub of the El Cajon Police Department. The driver was headed north on Second Street when the crash occurred.
The identity of the driver, a man in his mid-30s, was not released pending family notification. He was the only occupant in the vehicle, police said.
Police were investigating the cause of the crash, Taub said. It’s unknown if drugs or alcohol played a role in this crash.
Northbound and southbound lanes of North Second were temporarily shut down between Persimmon Avenue to Greenfield Drive, he said.
