Noel Basaluda of Oceanside was heading north on Interstate 5 around 2:30 a.m. Sunday, Sept. 10, when the Hyundai Sonata he was driving veered off the roadway for unknown reasons, went down an embankment alongside the 1700 block of South Oceanside Boulevard and struck a eucalyptus tree, according to the San Diego County Medical Examiner’s Office.

Basaluda died at the scene of the accident. Authorities said it has not been determined if alcohol or drugs were a factor in the crash.
