CHP new logoEL CENTRO — A 21-year female was driving her 2012 Infinity west on I-8, east of Imperial Avenue at an unknown speed shortly past one in the morning and without wearing her seatbelt. She was alone in her car. As she neared Imperial Avenue exit, she merged in a northwesterly direction onto the off-ramp.

For an unknown reason, she allowed her Infinity to run off the south paved road edge of the Imperial Avenue off-ramp. The Infinity overturned as it tumbled down the steep dirt embankment. The driver sustained fatal injuries as a result of the rollover collision, which is still under investigation according to Investigating Officer Arroyo of the California Highway Patrol.
