An El Dorado County man died in a crash early Tuesday morning on Highway 49.

The California Highway Patrol reported that Forrest Garrison, 42, was driving northbound on Highway 49, just south of the town of El Dorado, when his 1997 Mercedes Benz E320 entered a left curve at 1:19 a.m.

His car continued straight and onto the right shoulder before striking a boulder, a wall and a gate. The car then overturned onto its roof.

Garrison was not wearing his seat belt, according to the CHP.
