The accident took place about 7:30 p.m. near Corona Road.
As per the article, California Highway Patrol said 19-year-old Yessenia Gomez was driving a 2002 Honda Civic north on Highway 101 when her vehicle rolled at least once and landed on its wheels.
One occupant, 18-year-old Santa Rosa resident Erasmo Lugo‑Garcia, was ejected from the backseat. He was found unconscious with several critical injuries.
