A man who died in a crash in unincorporated San Mateo County early this morning has been identified by the California Highway Patrol as 24-year-old Darryl Gainer.
At about 1:15 a.m., Gainer, a San Jose resident, was driving a 1991 Mazda Miata east on Page Mill Road near Skyline Boulevard in the Skyline Ridge Open Space Preserve area when he drove off the roadway and struck a tree on the north shoulder.
Gainer, who was alone in the car, was airlifted to a hospital and pronounced dead a few hours later, according to the CHP. It does not appear that any other vehicles were involved.
Investigators do not know why the car went off the roadway and are seeking witnesses to the crash. Anyone with information is asked to contact Officer Bowers at the Redwood City CHP office at 650-369-6261, ext. 304.
