The solo crash occurred on Highway 1 near Cayucos after the driver, who allegedly later told police he was under the influence of the synthetic drug known as "spice," ran off the road causing the SUV to flip, according to the CHP.

The driver, Tanner Mengore, 22, was arrested and is being charged with driving under the influence resulting in death. As of Thursday, he was no longer in custody, according to jail records.
