An ac­ci­dent along a dirt road Satur­day night in Cal­i­for­nia Val­ley kills a 23-year-old, the sole oc­cu­pant of the car.

A 23-year-old woman died in a sin­gle-car rollover crash in Cal­i­for­nia Val­ley on Satur­day night, ac­cord­ing to a news re­lease from the Cal­i­for­nia High­way Pa­trol.

At about 8 p.m., the woman was driv­ing a 2006 Ford Taurus at about 50 to 55 mph north on El Mira Road north of Bel­mont Trail, the CHP said.

The car drifted to the left, and the woman “made an unsafe turn­ing move­ment” to the right, which caused the car to veer from a straight path of travel, the CHP said.

The woman lost con­trol of the car, and the car left the dirt road and trav­eled down a small em­bank­ment, the CHP said. When she tried to re­gain con­trol of the car, it rolled over once and came to rest on its wheels, the CHP said.

The woman, who was not wear­ing a seat­belt, suf­fered fa­tal in­juries as a re­sult of the crash, the CHP said. She has been iden­ti­fied as Rob­bie Lee Roe of Cal­i­for­nia Val­ley, ac­cord­ing to the CHP.

There were no eye­wit­nesses to the col­li­sion, the CHP said.

Due to the re­mote lo­ca­tion of the crash, the CHP said they were not con­tacted about the crash un­til nearly 10 p.m., when a friend of Roe’s came across the col­li­sion on El Mira Road.

The crash is un­der in­ves­ti­ga­tion.
