June 16, 2016 (Dulzura) – A 36-year-old woman from Dulzura died at the scene of a rollover accident yesterday on State Route 94 East of Otay Lakes Road in Jamul. She was not wearing a seatbelt.

According to California Highway Officer Kevin Pearlstein, the woman was driving a 2004 Ford Sport Trac eastbound on 94 at about 45 miles per hour when she missed a curve and went off the roadway.  The vehicle overturned and the driver was ejected onto the pavement.

Emergency personnel responded to the scene, but the driver succumbed to her injuries.  No other vehicles were involved and it appears alcohol was a factor, Officer Pearlstein said.
