A 21-year-old man has been identified as the victim in a fatal crash in Hayward late Thursday night, according to the Alameda County coroner's bureau.

Jose Gomez-Jacobo, whose city of residence was not immediately available, was killed in a crash reported around 11:30 p.m. near 30640 San Clemente St., police said.

A Ford SUV was found with Gomez-Jacobo in the driver's seat, police said.

Police believe the vehicle was traveling north on San Clemente Street as it approached San Antonio Street when it went off the roadway.

The SUV crashed into a fire hydrant and then a tree, causing major damage to the driver's side of the car.

Gomez-Jacobo was pronounced dead at the scene, police said.

Based on the extent of damage done to the vehicle, police said it is possible that speed may have been a factor in the crash.

Police have not determined whether drug or alcohol use were contributing factors in the accident.
