Authorities are investigating what caused a solo crash that killed a 22-year-old man on State Route 92 at El Camino Real early Saturday.

The CHP responded to the solo vehicle crash involving a 2017 Acura at about 1 a.m. They learned the sedan had left the south road edge of SR-92 eastbound. The vehicle traveled off of a dirt embankment before overturning and colliding into the top of a concrete wall that divides northbound from southbound SR-82, also called El Camino Real, according to the CHP.

Both directions of SR-82 were closed during the investigation and cleanup, with the northbound lanes reopened at about 2:40 a.m. and the southbound lanes reopened just before 4 a.m., the CHP said.

The identity of the victim has been been released pending notification of next of kin, CHP said.

It is not known yet if drugs and/or alcohol were a factor  in the collision. Any witnesses are encouraged to contact Officer H. Clayton at the Redwood City CHP office. (650) 369-6261.
