A man died after he lost control of his car, striking two oncoming vehicles on a rural El Dorado County road Sunday morning, the California Highway Patrol said.
The victim, James Kuehn, 58, of Shingle Springs was in a northbound Toyota sports car on Latrobe Road, south of Cothrin Ranch Road, when the car crossed the double yellow lines, according to Sgt. Chris Sahagun. The Toyota sideswiped a Chevrolet Malibu before striking a Mercedes sedan head-on, Sahagun said.
CHP received calls about the crash at 10:57 a.m. Sunday.
Both the Chevrolet and the Mercedes were traveling south. The drivers and occupants of those vehicles did not suffer any injuries. Kuehn was pronounced dead on scene.

Sahagun said alcohol is not suspected to be a factor in the crash. The accident remained under investigation by the CHP.
