CORPUS CHRISTI - The medical examiner's office has identified 57-year-old Mertis Jones Jr. as the man who died when he drove into Oso Bay early Sunday.
Police say Jones' car went off S.P.I.D. and over traffic warning signs before hitting the water.
Officers got him out of the water around 2:30 in the morning, but Jones died a short time later. The Corpus Christi PD's dive team recovered the vehicle.
There's no word on what caused Jones to drive off the freeway.
