36-Year-Old Man Dies in Crash on Hwy. 1 Near Sea Ranch

CHP withholds ID of man, who was driving a Jaguar.

 A man died Monday night when his car crashed on state Highway 1 near The Sea Ranch in northern Sonoma County, a California Highway Patrol officer said.

The 36-year-old man's name is being withheld because his family is still being notified of the death, a Sonoma County coroner's office spokeswoman said.

The man was driving a 2000 Jaguar south on the two-lane highway north of Vantage Road at a high rate of speed when the crash happened around 8:45 p.m., CHP Officer Kerri Post said.

He failed to negotiate a sweeping curve in the road, crossed into the northbound lane and struck a dirt embankment and a tree on the east side of the highway, Post said.

The Jaguar caught fire, with the driver trapped inside, Post said.

The crash closed the highway for several hours.
