One person was killed in a single-vehicle crash late Wednesday night in Bonsall.
About 11:50 p.m., an Acura sedan overturned into a ditch near the intersection of Camino Del Rey and Old River Road, according to North County Fire Protection District spokesperson Capt. John Choi.
Per a statement from the California Highway Patrol, the Acura left the roadway to the right, impacted a bollard and water hydrant, then went airborne before coming to rest on its left side.
The driver of the Acura, a 21-year-old Fallbrook man, was initially uninjured as a result of the collision, and passing motorists had stopped to help, the CHP said.
As the man was trying to climb out of the right front window of the car, however, it became unstable and overturned, crushing the man, the CHP said.
The man, whose name was not immediately released, was pronounced dead at the scene.
The roadway near the crash scene was closed until about 3 a.m. Thursday, the CHP said.
