A 24-year-old Holtville resident died Saturday afternoon in a rollover accident on Evan Hewes Highway.

According to California Highway Patrol, the victim was driving a 1999 Ford (model not indicated) eastbound on Evan Hewes, east of Mets Road, when he reportedly veered right onto the dirt shoulder. An attempt to correct course by turning left apparently caused him to lose control of the vehicle. The Ford overturned and the driver was partially ejected, killing him.
