The county Medical Examiner’s Office has identified a 19-year-old Pauma Valley man as the driver who died in a crash during a Border Patrol pursuit on Saturday near El Cajon.

Jesus Manuel Saldana died in the crash around 3 p.m. on westbound Interstate 8 near the Mollison Avenue exit, authorities said Tuesday.

Witnesses said that the 2017 Infiniti sedan was traveling at a high speed on the right shoulder while it was being pursued by Border Patrol agents, the California Highway Patrol said. Saldana lost control of the car for unknown reasons, veered off the freeway and crashed into a tree, authorities said.

The driver sustained major injuries and when paramedics arrived on the scene, they confirmed he had died, the county Medical Examiner’s Office said.

The California Highway Patrol is investigating the crash.
