A 21-year-old man was killed early Saturday morning in a single-vehicle crash in the Mission Bay Park area of San Diego.

The man was driving a 2003 BMW SUV eastbound in the 200 block of Sea World Drive at 1:20 a.m. when he missed a curve, struck the raised center median and lost control of the vehicle.

The SUV crossed to the south edge of the road and hit a street lamp and tree on the right shoulder, according to Officer Robert Heims of the San Diego Police Department.

The driver was pronounced dead at the scene, Heims said. His name was not disclosed.
