Tovar was traveling in the right hand lane going approximately 55 MPH, when his vehicle drifted off the roadway and drove onto the right shoulder.
Tovar over-corrected his steering and subsequently rolled over in the middle of the eastbound traffic lanes. Tovar sustained a major head injury and was flown to UCSD Medical Center by Reach helicopter.
The eastbound lanes were closed for 3 hours and traffic was diverted off SR-115.
This collision is still under investigation.
