A Fairbanks man was killed Wednesday in a single-vehicle car crash outside the city, state troopers said.

Troopers said Jose Raul Santiago, 56, was driving on Ballaine Road northwest of Fairbanks when his 2004 Volvo left the road, entered into an embankment and crashed into an elevated driveway. Santiago, who was not wearing a seatbelt, was ejected to the passenger side floor board and died at the scene.

Troopers said icy road conditions and speed contributed to the crash.
