“He was sitting on the edge, and they were coming over a little small hill. Somehow — it’s still under investigation — he fell off the edge and subsequently was hit and succumbed to his injuries,” California Highway Patrol Sgt. Lamonte Bosco told NBC affiliate KCRA.

The victim, from Suisun City, was not identified. Drugs or alcohol is not suspected to be a factor in the accident, the Highway Patrol said in a statement.
