The incident began with minor hit-and-run accident on First Avenue about 10:25 p.m., Friday, according to San Diego police Officer Robert Heims.
The driver fled heading the wrong way on Cedar Street, Heims said. A CHP officer driving on Cedar spotted the wrong-way driver and gave chase. The driver then made a U-turn in front of the CHP officer and turned onto Juniper Street.
The driver finally slammed his car into a retaining wall at 2330 First Ave., Heims continued. He was transported to a hospital where he was pronounced dead. His name was withheld pending notification of next of kin.
Anyone with information on this incident was asked to call the San Diego police or Crime Stoppers at (888) 580-8477.
