A young Bay Area man died after losing control of his Porsche and crashing the car at the bottom of a canyon in Malibu. The man has been identified as Wing Hay Tang, a 22-year-old man from Foster City, according to City News Service. CHP authorities say he was speeding in a 1998 Porsche on Piuma Road, headed west through the Santa Monica Mountains, at about 11 a.m. Sunday morning. Tang lost control of the car about two miles east of Las Virgenes Road. The Porsche plunged roughly 100 feet down an embankment, landing at the bottom of a canyon, LA Daily News reports.

Though Tang was driving alone, he was traveling with friends who were in other cars and who called 9-1-1. A paramedic was lowered via helicopter to the site of the crash, where the man was pronounced dead at the scene.
