The California Highway Patrol is releasing more information about a car crash that killed a driver on Interstate 280 in San Bruno late Saturday night.
The driver has been identified only as a 51-year-old San Bruno man, according to the CHP. His name is being withheld pending notification of relatives.
Just after 11 p.m., the man was heading north on I-280 near the interstate Highway 380 connector in San Bruno when his Mercedes smashed into the concrete wall on the east side of the roadway, according to the CHP.
The force of the crash sent the car into a guardrail, across four lanes of traffic and into the highway's center divider. The car came to rest in the roadway's center median, according to the CHP.
Emergency responders said the man was unresponsive, and he was pronounced dead at the scene.
Investigators are trying to determine whether the man died solely due to injuries suffered in the crash or for medical reasons.
The cause of the crash is under investigation.
No other vehicles were involved in the collision, although a complete shutdown of the roadway around the scene of the crash for about 30 minutes early this morning caused significant delays in the area.
