Authorities said Friday that a man found dead in the driver's seat of a vehicle that crashed into the Tujunga Wash in the Toluca Lake area was a 31-year-old from Woodland Hills.
The body was discovered about 7:15 a.m. Thursday near the 4300 block of Vineland Avenue, the Los Angeles Fire Department reported.
The man apparently was the driver of the vehicle, a 2008 Cadillac STS, said California Highway Patrol Officer Leland Tang. His name was withheld pending notification of relatives.
Tang said the vehicle was found on its left side, in about six inches of water in the wash, which is near the northbound Hollywood (101) Freeway.
Tang said the cause of the crash was not known, but it appeared no other vehicles were involved.
