A man who was killed in a crash on state Highway 152 in Gilroy early Sunday has been identified as Azmi Leone Munoz-Montesino, of Santa Cruz, according to the Santa Clara County medical examiner's office.

Munoz-Montesino, 33, was alone in his car when it crashed in the 1700 block of Highway 152 at about 2:25 a.m. Sunday, Gilroy police said.

The car smashed into a tree, triggering a fire beneath the vehicle, police said.

Emergency crews responded and extinguished the blaze.

Police are investigating whether Munoz-Montesino may be tied to reports of an earlier hit-and-run accident in which a driver struck cars parked in the area of First and Hanna streets.
