POWAY (KUSI) – A motorist was killed this morning in a solo-vehicle crash into a tree near a Poway intersection, authorities said.

The wreck was reported about 2:50 a.m. near the intersection of Pomerado Road and Twin Peaks Road, said San Diego County Sheriff’s Sgt. David Toner.

Investigators determined a 2010 Honda Civic coupe was heading eastbound on Camino Del Norte when its driver allowed the vehicle to veer to the right off the roadway and collide with a tree near Pomerado Road, Toner said.

The vehicle’s driver, the only occupant, was pronounced dead at the scene, the sergeant said.

No details about the victim were immediately available.
