The Sacramento County Coroner’s Office has identified the man killed in a single-vehicle crash last week on Roseville Road as Luis Villa Ayala of North Highlands.
Ayala, 51, was driving Thursday on Roseville Road at about 1:30 p.m. near Gold Run Avenue when his car continued straight ahead where the roadway turned left.
His car went off the right side of the road, hit a pole, flipped up and struck a wrought-iron fence, according to the California Highway Patrol.
Ayala, who was the only occupant, was ejected and died at the scene.
