SAN DIEGO - A man was killed when his pickup truck struck the side of a car and overturned several times at an intersection in the Bay Ho neighborhood, police said Tuesday.

It happened shortly before 11:15 p.m. Monday at the intersection of Clairemont Drive and Balboa Avenue, San Diego police Officer Robert Heims said.

A 24-year-old woman was driving a Toyota sedan eastbound on Balboa Avenue when a 37-year-old man driving a Ford F-150 pickup northbound on Clairemont Drive ran a red light and struck the passenger side of the Toyota in the intersection, Heims said.

The woman suffered minor injuries, but declined transport to a hospital, Heims said.

The San Diego Police Department's traffic division was investigating the crash.
