chpThe California Highway Patrol has identified a 32-year-old Paso Robles man who died in a car crash Sunday in rural Paso Robles as Samuel Telles Sanchez.

Sanchez was driving a pickup truck northbound on River Road near Experimental Road when he lost control going around a curve because of excessive speed, officers said. He hit two utility poles cutting them off near the ground, rolled the vehicle and then crashed into a tree.

CHP investigators believe alcohol may have been a factor in the accident. Toxicology reports are expected to be available in a week or two.
