A 22-year-old Olivehurst man was killed Friday, just before midnight, when he lost control of his car on Highway 99, a few miles north of the Sacramento-Sutter county line, the California Highway Patrol reported.
Witnesses told CHP the car was traveling north at a high rate of speed when it drifted onto the shoulder and then partially back onto the highway before overturning several times.
The driver, identified as Jesus Estrada-Vasquez, was not wearing a seatbelt and was thrown from the car.
The car came to rest on the driver, partly in a southbound lane of Highway 99.
Estrada-Vasquez was pronounced dead at the scene.
Alcohol and/or drugs are believed to be factors in this crash.
