Be careful out there!
A Corvette driver lost his life Friday morning when his 2013 Grand Sport coupe slammed into a tree during a storm Friday morning in the Miramar, California area.
San Diego police say Jack Villanueva, 64, of San Diego apparently lost control of his Corvette on the rain-slicked roadway as he headed south in the 8000 block of Kearny Villa Road just south of Miramar Way around 8:30 a.m., spinning out and slamming into a tree on the passenger side of the vehicle.
Villanueva was thrown from the car and died at the scene, according to the medical examiner.
The crash occurred near the intersection of Harris Plant Road and Kearny Villa Road, just east of Marine Corps Air Station Miramar.
No other injuries were reported.
