The deceased man, Jin Ahn Jeong, was traveling northbound up a steep hillside in the Rowher Flats Off-Highway-Vehicle area, when his vehicle lost traction and rolled backward off the trail, according to the release from the investigating officer, A. Maurer.  

The crash occurred at approximately 4:12 p.m. and Jeong was thrown from the vehicle, according to the release.

“Mr. Jeong was ejected from the vehicle as it rolled backward, and sustained fatal injuries,” said Sergeant Mike Logi of the California Highway Patrol.

The rear end of the vehicle impacted the hillside and the vehicle rolled to the bottom of the embankment, according to the release.

The vehicle was not recovered from the spot because of difficult terrain, Logi said.

Jeong was driving a 1997 Lexus LX450, and his speed at the time of the crash is unknown, according to the release.

Jeong’s next of kin have been notified, Logi said.
