A single-vehicle rollover on State Route 246 on Friday leaves one passenger dead and the other occupants injured.

CHP says driver 51-year old Sheri Ann Craig from Port Hueneme was driving eastbound on State Route 246 in her Honda Civic around 7:33 p.m. at approximately 60 mph in the number one lane when for unknown reasons drifted into the dirt and plant center median. This caused the Honda Civic to overturn multiple times and ended up in the number two lane.

The other passenger sustained lacerations to the head and complained of pain to the chest and legs.

Craig and the passenger were transported to an area hospital for treatment.
