TULARE COUNTY, Calif. (KFSN) -- The California Highway Patrol is investigating a crash in Tulare County that killed a Sacramento woman.
Officers say it happened just after 7 Sunday morning on Highway 99 just north of Avenue 152 in Tipton.
For an unknown reason, the 62-year-old let her car drift off to the left shoulder of the road and then over-corrected, veering the opposite direction.
That took her car up an embankment and through a chain link fence separating Highway 99 from Thompson Road.
The car overturned and the driver was thrown from the vehicle.
She was not wearing a seat belt and died at the scene.
A 40-year-old front passenger was wearing a seat belt and was taken to Kaweah Health for her injuries.
