A Dos Palos man died after his vehicle ran off a rural road for an unknown reason in south San Jose, according to the California Highway Patrol.

James M. Kindrick, 56, was driving a 1994 Pontiac TransSport westbound on Metcalf Road when he lost control of the vehicle Tuesday night, according to officer Jaime Rios of the California Highway Patrol.

For unknown reasons, the vehicle went off the roadway on the right shoulder and Kindrick turned left to correct the car’s direction, Rios said. The car rolled over and came to rest on the right shoulder, facing south.

The accident happened about 8:23 p.m., according to Rios.

A passing motorist stopped at the scene and called 911, Rios said.

Kindrick was unconscious at the scene and paramedics attempted to revive him with first aid and CPR, with no success, Rios said. Kindrick was pronounced dead at the scene.

The initial investigation report said the driver was not ejected from the vehicle, but was killed by the impact of the crash.

Alcohol and weather are not believed to be factors in the crash, which is still under investigation, according to Rios.
