A man stole a car, smashed it into numerous parked vehicles in Mira Mesa, and ended up in a hospital Monday.

San Diego Police said the 30-year-old man was bleeding from his head when officers caught up with him shortly after 3 a.m., Sgt. Tom Sullivan said.

About two to three cars were struck in the 7700 block of Bendigo Road. There may have been more damaged vehicles on other nearby streets, but that was unclear.

There was no immediate word on whether the driver was under the influence of alcohol or drugs.
