ESCONDIDO (CNS) - A 21-year-old man was killed early Thursday in a solo car crash on a North County freeway interchange, authorities reported.

Jaime Diaz of National City lost control of his 1998 Ford Mustang while speeding onto the ramp between eastbound State Route 78 and southbound Interstate 15 in Escondido shortly before 1 a.m., according to the California Highway Patrol and county Medical Examiner's Office.

The sedan crashed through a metal guardrail and slammed into a concrete center divider, CHP public-affairs Officer Jim Bettencourt said. Diaz, who was not wearing seat belts, was partially ejected from the vehicle and suffered severe head injuries. He died at the scene.

Diaz was single and lived with his father, the medical examiner reported.
