A 28-year-old man killed in a solo vehicle crash in Escondido over the weekend has been identified by the county Medical Examiner's Office.

Investigators say at around 11:25 p.m. on Jan. 3, Adrian Sanga was traveling southbound on I-15 north of Centre City Parkway in a Lexus GS430 when, for reasons still under investigation, he lost control.

It is not known if alcohol or drugs contributed to the accident. Also, it is not known if anyone else was in the car.

The incident is under investigation.
