CHULA VISTA (CNS) - A driver was killed and a passenger was critically injured in a single-vehicle crash off Interstate 805 in Chula Vista, CHP said.

The crash happened at approximately 5:45 a.m. along the 805 Freeway between the Telegraph Canyon Road and East H Street exits, a California Highway Patrol dispatcher said.

A witness told officers that a black Toyota Scion veered off the road and went 50-70 feet up an embankment, then hit a tree.

The driver was thrown from the car and died at the scene, CHP said. The passenger was trapped in the wreckage and had to be extricated to be taken to a hospital in critical condition.

Officers continued to investigate the cause of the crash.
