SAN DIEGO (KGTV) -- The 21-year-old killed while driving across the trolley tracks near Encanto has been identified.

The San Diego County Medical Examiner says Alex Garza, 21, was believed to be distracted, possibly on the phone, when he reportedly tried to drive his Toyota Prius across the tracks just before midnight at 60th Street and Imperial Avenue.

The vehicle was struck by a trolley before it became pinned against a poll.

San Diego Police and fire units responded to the scene where Garza was pronounced dead.
