A 23-year-old woman died in a single-car rollover crash in California Valley Saturday night.

At about 8 p.m., the woman was driving a 2006 Ford Taurus going about 50 to 55 miles per hour northbound on El Mira Road north of Belmont, according to California Highway Patrol.

They said the car drifted to the left of the road, and then the woman made an “unsafe movement” to the right causing her to lose control of the car.

When she lost control, CHP said the car traveled down a slight descending embankment. They said the woman tried to regain control of the car but it rolled over once and came to rest on its wheels.

CHP identified the woman as Robbie Lee Roe of California Valley. She sustained fatal injuries from the collision, which CHP said was in part because she wasn’t wearing a seat belt.

They said because there were no witnesses and the crash was in a remote location CHP dispatch was not contacted until about 9:50 p.m.

The collision is currently under investigation by Templeton CHP.

A GoFundMe page has been set up to help Roe’s family pay for funeral expenses.
