SANTEE (CNS / CBS 8) - Investigators sought Monday to determine what caused a solo weekend car crash that killed a 48-year-old El Cajon man driving an antique convertible near Willowbrook Country Club.

Michael Gharring lost control of his 1932 Ford Roadster on a connector from Riverford Road to southbound state Route 67 in the Santee area about 8:40 p.m. Sunday, according to the California Highway Patrol.
   
The car, which was not equipped with seat belts, veered off the ramp, went down a dirt embankment and overturned, ejecting the driver.

Gharring was co-owner of Southland Envelope Company, located near the scene of the crash.  
   
Intoxication was not believed to have been factor in the accident, CHP public-affairs Officer Kevin Pearlstein said.
