Two people died in a car crash Sunday when the driver of a 1997 Buick Century lost control on Cacheville Road in Yolo County and hit a tree around 12:10 a.m., according to the California Highway Patrol.

The driver, a Woodland resident who has not been identified, was declared dead at the scene. The passenger, identified by the Sacramento County Coroner's Office as 27-year-old Jacob Lynch of Yolo County, was ejected from the Buick in the crash.

A helicopter transported Lynch to the UC Davis Medical Center in Sacramento, where he died at 2:23 a.m. Sunday.

The CHP is conducting an investigation into the cause of the crash. It is unclear if alcohol or drugs played a role.
