A man from La Mesa was killed in Las Mesa on Sunday after he lost control of his car. Police say that he was traveling at a high rate of speed.
SAN DIEGO (CNS) - Authorities identified a man killed in a single-vehicle crash on a La Mesa freeway today.
Charles Dilhalla III died when he apparently struck a concrete barrier while traveling at over 100 miles per hour.
It happened after 9 a.m. on westbound state Route 94, directly under a ramp to state Route 125.
Dilhalla was in the slow lane of the 94 when he lost control of his vehicle and it struck a concrete barrier, ejecting him.
Witnesses pulled over and attempted to give him CPR. Paramedics arrived and continued CPR, but were unable to revive Dilhalla, and he was pronounced dead at the scene.
Three lanes of the freeway had to be blocked while authorities investigated, but all were reopened by the afternoon.
