Coroner's officials Saturday identified a 49-year-old man who was killed in a hang-gliding accident the day before when he crashed into the rocky side of a riverbed.

Jeffrey Scott Craig of Lakewood suffered multiple fractures and blunt force trauma in the accident, said Lt. Joe Bale of the Los Angeles County coroner's office. The accident occurred about 3:30 p.m. Friday in the 12600 block of Gridley Street.

In the past, Craig had suffered a heart attack while hang gliding, Bale said. An autopsy will be performed to determine the exact cause.
