The San Mateo County coroner has identified a man who authorities found dead in a car this morning as 50-year-old Gonzalo Martinez-Hernandez, of East Palo Alto. Authorities responded to a call at around 9 a.m. from a motorist who stopped to take pictures next to state Route 35, about a mile south of state Route 92, and saw a possible vehicle about 80 feet down an embankment, Redwood City CHP spokesman Art Montiel said. When they arrived at the vehicle, authorities discovered the dead body of a man in the backseat of the car, Montiel said. There were no obvious signs of foul play, so authorities are
handling the incident as a collision at this time.
