Victor Samuel Luna, 20, of Lodi, has been identified by the San Joaquin Sheriff's Department as the driver who died in a solo-vehicle accident Monday evening in Lodi.
Luna was driving east on East Acampo Road at a high rate of speed when he lost control of his vehicle, according to a California Highway Patrol accident report.
Luna lost control when he approached the raised portion of the railroad tracks and became airborne. The vehicle landed and Luna attempted to regain control but overcompensated, according to a CHP press release.
He veered across the westbound lane and the vehicle collided head-on with a palm tree and before glancing off another. Luna was not wearing a seatbelt at the time of the incident, authorities said.
