Officers say the driver, a 42-year-old Sacramento resident, was not wearing a seatbelt. The impact of the crash caused him to hit the steering wheel and windshield, investigators say.
He was pronounced dead at the scene by medics, CHP says.
A SigAlert remained in place through most of the morning as officers investigated the crash. All lanes have since been reopened.
Investigators are still looking into whether drugs or alcohol were factors in the crash. Anyone who may have seen the crash is urged to call CHP at (916) 897-5600.
The name of the driver has not been released at this point.MORE NEWS: Sacramento Police Officer Justin Shepard Arrested For Alleged Domestic Violence Incident
