FORT TEJON, Calif. (KGET) — One person died and four others — including three children — were injured when a vehicle overturned Saturday on Cuddy Valley Road, west of White Rock Road.
The California Highway Patrol says a 2003 Honda Pilot was traveling east on Cuddy Valley Road when it veered right off the roadway then back left across both lanes and onto a dirt embankment where the SUV overturned an unknown number of times.
The SUV continued south across the lanes and down an embankment, officers said, where it came to a rest.
The driver, whose name has not yet been released, died at the scene.
The passengers suffered non-lifethreatening injuries, officers said, with one person receiving what were described as major injuries, the other three with minor injuries.
Children ages 1, 2 and 4 were in the vehicle.
Everyone wore a seat belt, according to the CHP. Impairment is not believed to be a factor.
