Driver killed when Corvette smashes into tree


SAN DIEGO -- A 64-year-old San Diego man who was killed Friday when his sports car veered off a rain-slicked roadway in the Miramar area and smashed into a tree, was identified Saturday by the Medical Examiner's Office.

Jack Villanueva was driving a 2013 Chevrolet Corvette southbound in the 8000 block of Kearny Villa Road just south of Miramar Way shortly before 8:30 a.m., according to San Diego police.

Villanueva lost control of the car, spun out, hit a tree and was ejected. He died at the scene, the medical examiner said.

No one else was injured.
