SAN DIEGO — A two-vehicle crash left one person dead and another injured Sunday in the Chollas View neighborhood, authorities said.

Around 1:00 p.m., San Diego Fire-Rescue and San Diego Police departments were alerted of an accident at 4500 Market St. involving a Lexus RX350 SUV and a Nissan Maxima.

The Nissan, which was headed westbound on Market St. crossed over the center divider line, colliding with the Lexus in the eastbound lanes.

The 63-year-old man driving the Nissan died from his injuries after being transported to the hospital, SDPD officials said.

An initial tweet from the SDFD indicated that at least three people had been transported to a local hospital following the accident, however, SDPD later confirmed that only a female passenger of an unknown age was escorted by paramedics after complaining about pain to her chest.

There is no additional information on the condition of the female passenger. The other people in the Lexus, the 61-year-old driver and another passenger, were reportedly unharmed.

Market Street was closed for several hours between 45th Street and 47th Street due to a “serious injury collision,” SDPD announced in a tweet following the accident.

According to SDPD, it took first responders about 20 minutes to rescue an individual who was trapped inside one of the vehicles, who was later identified as the driver of the Nissan.

It is unknown what caused the 63-year-old to veer into the eastbound lanes or if driving under the influence is a contributing factor to the accident.

The cause of the crash is under investigation.
