Investigators sought Friday to determine the events that led to a fatal late-night solo car wreck in Vista.
The accident occurred about 11:40 p.m. Thursday, when an eastbound Honda Civic veered off South Santa Fe Avenue near Buena Creek Road, crashed through a fence, went into a ditch and caught fire, according to the California Highway Patrol.
The unidentified male driver died at the scene of the crash, CHP public-affairs Officer Hunter Gerber said.
The cause was under investigation.
“It is not yet known if alcohol and/or drugs … contributed to the cause of this (accident),” Gerber said Friday.
