The identity of the 28-year-old Mountain View man who died Sunday evening when his car crashed into a light pole in San Jose was released by the County Coronor's office Tuesday.
The man has been identified as Kiel Sturm, a programmer, and gem collector who unsuccessfully sued Ebay for defamation and the world for "being meanies." His family told the San Jose Mercury News that Sturm had been diagnosed with bipolar disorder, but that they didn't believe this death and his diagnoses were related.
Officers on Sunday responded to a crash in the 2200 block of Camden Avenue at 6:36 p.m.
Police found a silver 2002 Nissan Altima that had collided with the pole while traveling east on Camden Avenue. The driver of the car was pronounced dead at the scene, police said.
The Santa Clara County coroner's office will conduct toxicology tests, but police said they do not suspect that alcohol or drugs were a factor in the crash.
Anyone with information about the crash has been asked to call the San Jose police at (408) 277-4654.
Patch will continue to update this story as new information becomes available.
