Officials in Alameda County have identified the driver of a Model S Tesla that crashed through a fence and into a pond in a remote stretch of Crow Canyon Road Sunday as Keith Leung, 34, of Danville.
Investigators are still looking into the cause of the crash reported at 8:31 p.m. Sunday, Leung’s car plunging off the road and into a small pond at 11567 Crow Canyon Road in Castro Valley.
A California Highway Patrol spokesman said investigators are looking into the cause of the crash, trailering the wreckage of Leung’s Model S to a local tow yard for further examination. The CHP is looking into whether speed was a factor at the time of the crash as well as whether the car’s autopilot feature was activated when the car left the road.
Leung was a talented musician who sat in with a variety of local orchestras and bands and who played clarinet with the Danville Community Band, friends said.
