 A 67-year-old motorist was badly hurt Thursday in a solo car crash at a Sorrento Valley intersection.

The man was headed north in the 9400 block of Camino Santa Fe about 10:15 a.m. Thursday when he lost control of a 2018 Mini Cooper, sending it veering off the roadway and crashing into a traffic-signal pole, according to the San Diego Police Department.

Paramedics took him to a hospital for treatment of serious, but apparently non-life-threatening injuries, Officer David O’Brien said.

The cause of the accident was under investigation, though intoxication was not believed to have been a factor, police said.
