Saturday's solo-vehicle crash claimed the life of Jake Pete Wikoff, 37, of Loyalton, California, CHP Officer Erica Elias said.
Loyalton is a tiny town in Sierra County near the California-Nevada border with a population just 862, according to the 2000 census.
Wikoff was driving his 1998 Ford southbound on Fairview Road south of Rosa Morada Road in Hollister when he made an unsafe turn to the right and lost control of the vehicle, Elias said.
The car went off the west sholder and overturned in a dirt field. He was pronounced dead at 11:52 a.m.
It is unknown if drugs or alcohol played a part in the crash, but the entire incident is still under investigation.
