SAN DIEGO — A man died after his car crashed into a parked vehicle early Thursday in San Diego’s Grant Hill neighborhood, but investigators believe he was the victim of a homicide.
The 25-year-old Latino man was driving a dark-colored sedan southbound on 27th Street when he crashed into a parked car in the 200 block, San Diego police said.
