The California Highway Patrol is investigating a weekend rollover San Diego car accident that killed a former U.S. marine and a female passenger.

Officials say 24-year-old Steven Adam Gagnon died after the car he and two other people were riding in lost control on a curved stretch of SR-163 near Kearney Mesa and fell down a 200-foot embankment.

“They were moving at a high rate of speed around the corner. However, we don’t know if any alcohol was involved or any other cars at this time,” SDFD Capt. David Gerboth said Saturday night.

Officers say Gagnon was sitting in the backseat when the accident happened and was not wearing a seat belt. He was pronounced dead at the scene.

Two women who were also in the vehicle were taken to area hospitals. One woman sustained life-threatening injuries and later died. The other suffered only minor injuries.

The cause of the accident is still under investigation.
