SAN DIEGO — A 22-year-old man was found dead Friday in the wreckage of a car that had plunged into a ravine alongside state Route 52 in the Miramar area.
A passing westbound trucker spotted the crumpled black sedan about 100 feet down an embankment just east of Interstate 805 shortly before 6:30 a.m., according to the California Highway Patrol.
Investigating officers found the body of San Diego resident Taylor Skiffington, the county Medical Examiner’s Office reported. It was unclear how long Skiffington had been dead.
