The injured woman was airlifted to a hospital, but details about her injuries are being withheld.

A short time later, the California Highway Patrol says Amaya was driving at high-speed on Interstate 15 when he lost control of the SUV and it plummeted down an embankment.

Amaya, who wasn't wearing a seat belt, was ejected during the crash and killed.

The cause of the crash is under investigation.
