A man was found dead in a parked pickup truck off Interstate 5 in Encinitas Tuesday night.
Authorities responded just before 9:05 p.m. to the area of Villa Cardiff Drive and Birmingham Drive after receiving a call from a person who said he found his uncle “possibly asleep” inside a locked Ford Ranger van, according to the California Highway Patrol.
Officers arrived at the scene and found the man unresponsive in the truck. Authorities pronounced him dead at the scene.
The man’s name was not immediately released, and investigators have not determined his manner of death.
