    Authorities identified Wednesday the driver killed when his sport utility vehicle struck a tree on a major highway in New Jersey's capital city on Christmas morning.

    Trenton Police say Armando Canil-Ajqui, a 31-year-old city resident, was killed in the crash that occurred shortly before 7 a.m. Tuesday on southbound Route 29, not far from the Waterfront Park baseball stadium.

    Police say Canil-Ajqui had to be extricated from the vehicle and was pronounced dead at the scene a short time later. His wife and their children -- a 10-month-old boy and two-year-old girl -- were treated for minor injuries. Their names were not released.

    The cause of the accident remains under investigation.
