A 74-year-old man was killed Wednesday after his car overturned down an embankment near South Lake Tahoe, the California Highway Patrol said.

CHP said Pace tried to steer back onto the roadway, but his car overturned, fell 150 feet down an embankment and struck a tree.

There were no witnesses to the crash, so it was unreported until around 1:30 p.m., CHP said.

Anyone with further information is encouraged to call the South Lake Tahoe CHP office.
