SAN FRANCISCO (BCN)
A man who was killed in a crash near San Francisco’s Lake Merced on Monday night has been identified by the medical examiner’s office as 25-year-old Yongze Wei.
The crash happened at about 10 p.m. at Lake Merced and Sunset boulevards.
Wei, who was alone in a black BMW, was driving east on Lake Merced Boulevard when the car hit a curb, struck a pole and overturned, police spokesman Officer Gordon Shyy said.
Wei was ejected from the vehicle and pinned underneath it, Shyy said. He was extricated and taken to San Francisco General Hospital, where he was pronounced dead.
A preliminary investigation determined that speed was a factor in the crash, Shyy said. Wei was also not wearing a seatbelt, he said.
