Identity of victim in fiery Marin County crash still unknown

Efforts to determine the identity of a driver who died in a fiery Marin County crash 10 days ago continued Monday with CHP officers suspecting he may have been from Sonoma County.

The driver crashed in a Honda sedan at about 6:40 p.m. on April 13 while traveling on Highway 101 at Highway 37.

The northbound car veered across four lanes and an offramp at Highway 37 before crashing into a bridge support column and overturning.

The car burst into flames. The driver was burned beyond all recognition, including age or gender, and any identification carried in the car was destroyed.

Investigators Friday were attempting to find the driver's family and the investigation was focusing in Sonoma County, said CHP Officer Andy Barclay on Monday.

Marin County sheriff's Lt. Jamie Scardina Monday said dental records probably will be used to make an official identification.
