The Texas Department of Public Safety is investigating a one vehicle crash that occurred Friday morning.
Troopers said that at 1:37am on Pennsylvania Avenue west of Gable Road in San Benito a red 2007 model Saturn Aurora was traveling west on Pennsylvania Avenue approaching a curve at an unsafe speed.
The driver, Alex Guerra, Jr, was unable to negotiate the curve, which caused the car to go into a left side skid.
Authorities said the 20-year-old left the right side of the road and struck a tree.
He was pronounced dead at the scene.
Troopers determined that the driver was not wearing his seatbelt and will continue to investigate.
