A man killed in a one-car crash on state Highway 87 in San Jose on Wednesday afternoon has been identified by the Santa Clara County medical examiner's office as Sunnyvale resident Brett Wayne Wofford.

Wofford, 54, was traveling within the speed limit in the No. 2 lane on northbound Highway 87, just south of West Taylor Street, when he lost control of his white Nissan truck, California Highway Patrol spokesman Officer DJ Sarabia said.
