A suspected drunk driver was killed when he stopped his car on Interstate 5 in Encinitas, the California Highway Patrol said Sunday.
The driver, a 27-year-old man, came to a stop without lights about 3:10 a.m. in the right lane of the I-5 north just south of Leucadia Boulevard, CHP said.
He opened his door and was immediately struck from behind by another vehicle traveling about 50 miles per hour, the CHP said.
Jennifer Ramirez, 38, told the CHP that she did not see his car until right before she hit his car. She was not hurt.
The killed driver was suspected of driving under the influence, the CHP said.
