PALMDALE, Calif. (AP) - Authorities say a motorist walked away with minor injuries from a single-vehicle crash that killed a passenger and seriously injured four others on a desert road in northern Los Angeles County.

The California Highway Patrol says four people were thrown from the car Saturday as it flipped over and slammed into a utility pole east of Palmdale.

The CHP said Sunday that a 20-year-old man died at the scene. Four other passengers were hospitalized with critical injuries.

The driver, a 26-year-old woman, wasn’t seriously hurt. The CHP says she was not arrested.

The crash is under investigation.
