The motorist who died early Monday morning when the car he was in left the roadway and struck a tree near the California State University, Sacramento, campus has been released.
The Sacramento County Coroner's office identified him as William F. Schuster, 21, of Sacramento.
The car Schuster was in was traveling eastbound on J Street near Carlson Drive about 12:45 a.m. Monday when the vehicle left the roadway and struck at least one tree.
Schuster, who was ejected from the vehicle, died at the scene.
A man and a woman who were also in the car, were transported to the hospital with significant injuries, a Sacramento police spokeswoman said.
Police have not determined a cause for the crash.
Initially, police identified Schuster as the driver of the car. However, investigators are not absolutely sure as yet if he was driving.
