Posted: Updated:

SAN DIEGO (CNS) - An investigation was underway Friday into a traffic accident in which a man drove off state Route 94 and into a palm tree, killing himself and injuring his female passenger.

The accident near F Street and Glendale Avenue in the Golden Hill area of San Diego was reported at 7:38 p.m. Thursday, according to the California Highway Patrol.

The man, who was traveling west in a white Acura Integra, rolled the car onto its top before striking the tree, the San Diego County Medical Examiner's Office reported. He died at the scene.

Paramedics took the man's injured passenger to an area hospital after extricating her from the mangled car, according to San Diego fire-rescue.

San Diego police said the man, who was part of a caravan, veered off the road after two vehicles in front of him were involved in a rear-ending accident. The other two vehicles were also part of the caravan.
