The coroner’s office this week released the name of the 33-year-old man who died when he was ejected from his car after crashing into guardrails on the southbound Antelope Valley (14) Freeway in Palmdale.
The crash occurred about 1 a.m. March 21 at 10th Street West, the California Highway Patrol reported.
Bryan Gamez was driving a 1997 Acura RL when it veered to the right and crashed into the metal guardrail north of Avenue O-8, then swerved across all lanes and crashed into the metal guardrail in the center of the southbound side, according to CHP Officer M. Carder.
Gamez was not wearing a seatbelt and was ejected from the midsized, luxury car, landing in the No. 3 southbound lane.
Gamez was pronounced dead at the scene. The investigation will include a look at whether drugs or alcohol were involved, Carder said.
