32-year-old Daniel Garcia, of Willows, died due to the collision. The passenger in the car, 55-year-old Jennifer Gailbreth, of Willows, is at the hospital with major injuries, according to the CHP.

The vehicle was traveling northbound on Country Road D north of County Road 57. CHP Officer Baxter said the driver drifted and lost control, then overturned onto the right shoulder and struck an electrical pole.

"Well there's obviously speed involved," said Officer Baxter. "I haven't determined what the approximate speed is yet, but we got a fairly large scene so the vehicle was traveling at a decent speed at the time of the accident."
