POWAY (CNS) - A motorist apparently deliberately rammed a large metal garbage bin behind a fast food eatery in Poway, seriously injuring the person.
The crash occurred in the parking lot of a Panda Express on Poway Road near Midland Road just after 8 p.m. Saturday, said San Diego County sheriff's Deputy Mark Karo.
After interviewing witnesses and studying the scene, deputies determined that a vehicle was speeding through the parking lot and the driver possibly accelerated before crashing into the bin, Karo said.
The driver was the only person inside, and was taken to a local hospital with serious injuries. It was unknown if drugs or alcohol played a factor in the crash, the deputy said.
Deputies withheld the driver's name due to the ongoing investigation.
