It appears a man driving a sedan was heading west on Finch Road when, for an unknown reason, he tried to make a u-turn. The turn put the sedan into the lane of an oncoming SUV, which soon struck the sedan.
The sedan driver, who officers say was not wearing a seatbelt, was pinned-in by the crash. He was pronounced dead at the scene, CHP says.
Officers say the SUV driver was not hurt.
