Around 6:25pm, California Highway Patrol says, for reasons still under investigation, Corey Adam Neill, 18, drove his 1995 Chevrolet pickup at a speed that was unsafe for the condition of the dirt/gravel roadway. CHP says, due to Neill's speed on the rough roadway, he lost control of his vehicle. The vehicle went into a ditch and then overturned.
As the vehicle overturned, passenger Andrew L. Metlenko was ejected from the vehicle and pronounced dead at the scene. Metlenko was not wearing a seat belt.
Alcohol was not a contributing factor to the collision.
