Oscar Silva Lizarraga was driving southbound on San Juan Road in Shandon around 3 a.m. Sunday when he drifted off the road and onto the shoulder. California Highway Patrol officials say Lizarraga over-corrected his 1997 Ford F250, causing the truck to overturn.
The crash ejected Lizarraga from the truck. He was not wearing a seat belt at the time.
Officials pronounced Lizarraga dead at the scene.
CHP investigators say they do not believe alcohol or drugs played a role in the crash, but the driver may have been fatigued.
