The Napa County Sheriff’s Office identified the motorist who died in a fiery crash on Orchard Avenue Saturday night as Cyle Ross Cotten, 26, of Napa.
Identification was made using dental records, Sheriff’s Capt. Tracey Stuart said in a news release Tuesday morning.
The cause of death is pending a toxicology analysis, she said.
Cotten was the sole occupant in a 2004 Pontiac GTO coupe that crashed at high speeds into a tree after failing to make a hairpin turn, the California Highway Patrol said.
The vehicle was engulfed in flames soon after impact.
