ESCONDIDO, Calif. — A person was killed early Friday morning in an apparent single-vehicle crash in a rural neighborhood of Escondido, according to the California Highway Patrol.

A witness heard the crash and reported it about 2:45 a.m. on North Broadway near Paso Del Norte, according to a CHP incident log. North Broadway in the area is a curvy two-lane road that winds through a lightly populated neighborhood, with small residential roads and long private driveways branching off the main street.

The vehicle involved in the crash apparently went off the side of North Broadway and struck a tree, according to the CHP. A witness drove a second victim who was involved in the crash roughly six miles to Palomar Medical Center in Escondido.

At 3:20 a.m., the San Diego County Medical Examiner’s Office was dispatched and the CHP classified the crash as a fatality.
