A man killed in a car crash in Hayward on Sunday evening has been
identified by the Alameda County coroner's bureau as 21-year-old Omar Alimi.
Police said Alimi, a Hayward resident, was driving erratically
heading south on Industrial Parkway Southwest, near the Union City border,
when he lost control of his car and crashed at about 7:30 p.m.
Investigators believe he may have lost control while trying to
change lanes at a high rate of speed, police said.
The car hit a light pole and went down a small embankment, where
it came to rest, according to police.
Alimi, who was alone in the car, was pronounced dead at the scene.
He was not wearing a seatbelt, police said.
According to Alimi's Facebook and LinkedIn social media pages, he
attended James Logan High School in Union City and graduated in 2010, and was
working as a bank teller at a Bank of America in Milpitas.
Anyone with information about the crash is asked to call Hayward
police at (510) 293-7000.
