DES MOINES, Iowa (AP) — Authorities have identified the victim of a fatal car crash as 22-year-old Julio Cesar Carrillo, of Des Moines.
Police say the crash happened around 3 a.m. on Saturday in the eastbound lanes of Interstate 235 in Des Moines. Carrillo was found inside an SUV and was pronounced dead at the scene. Authorities say he was alone in the vehicle.
Police believe the SUV was traveling eastbound when it left the roadway's southern edge and ran up over a curb. The SUV began sliding sideways in the grass, where it collided with a street light before coming to rest on its top.
Authorities say they are still investigating.
