A fatal accident occurred early Sunday morning in the area of State Route 41 and Bush Street according to the California Highway Patrol.

At approximately 6 a.m. in foggy conditions, a 2014 Honda traveling northbound on SR-41 drifted off the road and collided into a wall resulting in the death of the driver, Jessica Lee Sauceda, 27 of Lemoore, according to the CHP.

She was pronounced dead at the scene of the accident. 

The CHP said that for an unknown reason the driver drifted from the northbound lanes onto the right shoulder. The car continued to hit a tree, go through a chain-link fence and strike a concrete block wall.

The driver was not wearing her seatbelt and was ejected from her vehicle, CHP officials said.

She was the only occupant of the vehicle.
