A 63-year-old Sacramento man died this morning in a single-vehicle crash on Interstate 80 near the Riverside Avenue exit in Roseville.
California Highway Patrol spokeswoman Officer Lizz Dutton said the driver of a Volkswagen Bug was eastbound on I-80 west of the Riverside Avenue exit at 11:47 a.m. when witnesses reported that the car veered to the right. The vehicle crossed two lanes leading to the offramp and spun around. Dutton said the rear of the vehicle struck a tree.
The man, who was alone in the vehicle, was identified by a family member as Robert Ellowitz, a psychotherapist at Kaiser South in Sacramento. He was pronounced dead at the scene.
Dutton said a medical condition may have caused the crash, which remains under investigation.
