One person is dead after a single vehicle rollover on Sunday morning that happened on Petroleum Club Road.

21-year-old Louis Anthony Seal Jr. was driving a green 1996 Ford Explorer from Maricopa to Taft when his vehicle drifted off the roadway. Police say he was unable to regain control of the vehicle, which overturned several times.

Seal was ejected during the rollover and died at the scene. Two adult male passengers were also in the vehicle, and both were transported to Bakersfield area hospitals with unknown injuries.

Police also said it appears as though no one in the car was wearing seatbelts at the time of the crash, and alcohol is expected to be a factor.

The investigation is ongoing.
