A 22-year-old Crescent City man died over the weekend after rolling his car on U.S. Hwy. 101 near Smith River.

Nicholas L. Bucher was driving northbound on Hwy. 101 just past Wilson Avenue about 2 a.m. Saturday when he lost control of his vehicle, slid across the north and southbound lanes, hit a dirt embankment and rolled his car numerous times. Bucher was ejected from his vehicle and onto the roadway, where he died.

As of Monday, California Highway Patrol was unsure as to what caused the accident, but officials said they expect to know more in the coming days.
