Speed and weather conditions likely played factors in a fatal rollover crash in Oroville. The accident happened just before four this afternoon on Foothill Boulevard at Oroville Garden Ranch Road.
According to the CHP, the driver of a silver Camaro was driving at a high rate of speed and the road was wet when he slammed into a utility pole. The Camaro ended up upside down in a ditch. The driver, identified only as a male, was ejected from the vehicle. He was not wearing a seatbelt and was pronounced dead at the scene. The name of the victim has not been released.
The road was closed completely for several hours this evening. Authorities say power lines did not go down as a result of the crash, as we reported earlier from the CHP.
