A 36-year-old driver was killed when her car overturned in Jamul Wednesday night in what California Highway Patrol (CHP) officials suspect was a DUI-related crash.
The deadly collision happened just after 9:15 p.m. on eastbound State Route 94 east of Otay Lakes Road in unincorporated San Diego County.
CHP investigators said the woman was traveling at 45 mph when she failed to negotiate a curve in the roadway. She drifted off the road and overturned her car on the pavement.
Investigators said the driver was not wearing her seat belt. She was thrown out of the car prior to hitting the pavement.
Officials said she died at the scene. Her name was not immediately released but the CHP said she is a resident of Dulzura.
No other vehicles were involved in the crash, which remains under investigation. The CHP believes alcohol was a factor.
