A man was killled after crashing his car into a center median on State Route 52 early Sunday morning, officials said.
The medical examiner said Sergio Joseph Dyda, 28, died due to obvious fatal trauma.
According to the California Highway Patrol, Dyda was speeding while heading West on SR-52 near Santo Road just after 4:30 a.m., when he lost control of his car.
Witnesses said the Subaru Outback slid into other lanes, crashed into the center divider and veered over the side of the freeway ejecting the driver.
Officials believe the vehicle continued moving for about a mile after that.
Dyda lived with his mother and siblings in Santee, according to the medical examiner.
No other vehicles were involved in the fatal accident.
