One of the two teenagers killed late Monday when a speeding car crashed through a guardrail along Torrey Pines Road and plunged down a rocky embankment to the beach has been identified as a 19-year-old Lake Elsinore man.

Joshua Manzanares and another passenger were thrown from the 2020 Subaru WRX when the driver lost control while heading south on Torrey Pines Road south of Carmel Valley Road shortly before 11 p.m.

The car struck the center median, crashed through a guardrail and overturned as it went down an embankment, the San Diego County Medical Examiner’s Office and San Diego Police Department said.

San Diego police said the driver, who suffered minor injuries, was driving at a high rate of speed when he crashed. Investigators suspect the driver was under the influence of alcohol or drugs.

Manzanares, who was not wearing a seat belt, died at the scene. The identity of the other teen who died has not been released.

Paramedics pulled the driver and two passengers from the mangled vehicle and transported them to a hospital for treatment. The two passengers suffered major injuries, police said.

All five occupants of the vehicle were male. Two passengers were 18 and two were 19, police said.

A police spokesman said the crash remains under investigation and declined to answer questions. It was unclear Wednesday if the driver would face criminal charges.
