A man driving through West LA last night allegedly shot himself in the head while behind the wheel, reports the Daily Breeze. Anthony Camacho, 20, of Culver City, was driving an SUV when officials believe he raised a gun to his head and pulled the trigger, sending his car crashing into a truck in front of him near the intersection of Sepulveda and Wilshire Bvlds. No one else was hurt.

The incident occurred around 11:00 p.m. and is still under investigation. Camacho died at the scene.
