Man killed on SR-78 while running from accident

Posted: Updated:

VISTA (CNS) - A man suspected of drunken driving was killed on Highway 78 during a bizarre series of three crashes in Vista early Friday, authorities said.

The fatality on Highway 78, just east of Civic Center Drive, was reported at 12:37 a.m., according to the California Highway Patrol.

The man was driving eastbound when his Toyota Scion clipped a pickup truck, causing the man to lose control and his vehicle to flip over, the CHP reported.

For unknown reasons, the man then got out of his vehicle and walked into westbound lanes, where he was struck by another vehicle and killed, according to the CHP. A third crash then happened between two vehicles in the area.

Details about the third crash were not immediately available.

No other injuries were reported.
