SAN DIEGO — A man was hospitalized Friday after the antique car he was riding in crashed in Clairemont Mesa, police said.
A 49-year-old man was driving his 1920 Ford Model T roadster on Chateau Drive with a 40-year-old man in the passenger seat around 2:30 p.m., San Diego police Officer Robert Heims said.
The driver lost control of the classic car and went over the curb near Varley Court, crashed through a fence and landed in a deep ditch.
Paramedics had to take the driver to a hospital to be treated for head trauma, though his injuries weren’t considered life-threatening, Heims said. The passenger escaped with only minor bumps and bruises.
