The death of a graduate student who died after a car crashed into a house in a rural area of California is being investigated by the California Highway Patrol.
Justin Scott Graziano, 21, died Friday after a two-lane, one-way road veered off the highway onto his property in Santa Clara County.
Graziano was from Colton, New Jersey.
The accident happened around 1:30 p.m. on Interstate 5 in Santa Clarita, according to the California Department of Motor Vehicles.
The California Highway Safety Authority said a California Highway patrol trooper had a traffic stop and pulled over a silver Honda Civic that was going 80 mph in a 45-mph zone.
The CHSA said the trooper pulled Grazio over after it had been struck by the Civic.
Gizmodo.com has obtained a copy of a crash report from the CHSA, which said the Honda Civic had a “low visibility” when the crash occurred.
It said the driver was “unresponsive and unresponsive to commands” when he was stopped.
Gaziano had graduated from Harvard Law school last year.
The school said it was not releasing any further information at this time.
According to a police report, the CHS reported the crash on Friday morning, the same day as the start of graduation ceremonies for law school graduates.
