“She was not wearing her seatbelt… and was partially ejected from the left side of the vehicle,” Cassidy said.
The vehicle was in the number-one lane when it drifted to the left into the carpool lane and struck the center divider, she said.
The vehicle then travelled along the center divider median wall before veering sharply to the right, where it crossed all lanes.
It proceeded to vault over the brush on the freeway shoulder, travel up the dirt brush hillside and land on its roof against another dirt hillside.
The identity of the victim is not being released at this time.
