The man killed Oct. 31 in a crash on Auberry Road south of Ventana Drive, just south of Millerton Lake, was identified Monday by the Fresno County Coroner's Office as Lawrence Diaz, 23.
The crash happened about 3 a.m. as Diaz was northbound in a 1999 Ford Explorer when the SUV veered off the road and ran into a tree. The Explorer burst into flames. Diaz died at the scene.
The California Highway Patrol initially reported that two people were killed in the crash, including a passenger who was airlifted to Community Regional Medical Center.
