The driver who died was reportedly driving erratically just before he crashed his 2005 Saturn Ion into the center divider and then ended up coming to rest in carpool lane facing the wrong way on the freeway, according to Suazo.
Vehicle: 2005 Saturn ION Bought my Ion used, mainly for the gas mileage since I drive about 2500 miles a month. It doesn't disappoint, averaging 30 (mostly highway driving). Styling is a little quirky, but it works. The rear doors on the coupe are a big plus! I've had no problems with the car; build quality is better than I expected from Saturn. It's quieter and better handling than most cars of its size, and comfort is about equal although the steering wheel is too far a reach. I sell cars for a living, and had my choice of several comparable cars. I'm happy I chose the Ion.
The man, who was traveling northbound at the time of the crash, died at the scene after being trapped inside the 2005 Saturn Ion, the report says.
