On 06/21/19 at about 06:48 AM, Escondido Police and Fire responded to a report of a single vehicle collision in the 100 block of Country Club Ln. between Broadway and Iris Ln. Officers arrived and found a 2002 Lexus IS430 had impacted a tree. The solo male driver was extricated by fire personnel. The driver was transported to PMC where he died a short time later. The subject's name will be released pending notification to his family.


Based on witness statements and physical evidence at the scene, it appears the vehicle was traveling west on Country Club Ln. from Broadway. The vehicle lost control and collided with the raised concrete median of Country Club Ln. and continued west, striking a large tree in the center median on the passenger side of the vehicle. Speed is considered a factor in the collision. Impairment is unknown at this time.


The investigation is ongoing and is being conducted by Traffic Investigator R. Gay. Witnesses are encouraged to contact Officer Gay at the above number.
