By Rick Hurd Contra Costa Times POSTED: 09/04/2014 11:07:54 AM PDT0 COMMENTS UPDATED: 09/04/2014 11:30:27 AM PDT ALAMO -- A man who died after he was trapped in a burning vehicle over the weekend has been identied as an Alamo man.

The California Highway Patrol said 60-year-old Michael Sevenau died after the silver 2000 Jaguar he was driving went off the road, hit a tree and caught fire. The wreck happened just after 12:30 a.m. Sunday.

An investigation showed the Jaguar was traveling east on Stone Valley Road and wound up in the west side of the road before colliding first with some mailboxes, CHP Officer John Fransen said.

The Jaguar then spun around, broke through a wooden fence and down a dirt embankment before hitting the tree. Police are still investigating whether drugs or alcohol played a role in the wreck.
Investigators have not yet determined if Sevenau suffered a medical issue while he was behind the wheel. He was pronounced dead at the scene. Contact Rick Hurd at 925-945-4789 and follow him at
