    A car careened out of control in Ramona, killing one of the passengers. The accident happened in an area where residents say they often worry about speeding drivers.

    Three men were traveling in a black car just before 3:30 p.m. Sunday along Ashley Road.

    According to the CHP, the driver was speeding and lost control before flipping the car onto its roof.

    At least one passenger, who was not wearing a seat belt, was ejected and died at the scene officers said.

    The accident happened right in front of Dennis Morgan's house.

    Morgan said he heard tires screech and then saw a car sliding across the front of his driveway.

    “[The car came] crashing into the rocks and the rock barrier, taking off the top of the little tree that's in the front, flipping three times, landing on it's roof and sliding up to within three feet of my little red Chrysler,” Morgan said.

    The driver of the car has been arrested for possible DUI charges.

    He and the other passenger were hospitalized with minor injuries.

    The man killed has not been identified.
