The wreck occurred at about 7:15 a.m. on eastbound I-580 east of the North Flynn Road junction when a 2010 black Ford Edge was observed speeding in the left-hand lane before veering hard to the right for unknown reasons and going off the roadway, according to CHP-Dublin Officer Tyler Hahn.

The SUV went down an embankment, ejecting the driver and coming to rest approximately 400 feet south of the southern edge of the freeway, according to Hahn.

The driver was pronounced dead at the scene. He appeared to be a 25- to 30-year-old man, although he had no identification on his persons or in the vehicle, according to Hahn. The Alameda County Coroner's Bureau is working to confirm his identity.

The circumstances of the solo-vehicle crash remain under investigation, according to Hahn.
