SACRAMENTO, Calif. (KTXL) — A driver died Wednesday morning when the California Highway Patrol says he hit a center divider on Highway 50 in South Sacramento.

Around 5:40 a.m., a 42-year-old Sacramento man driving east on Highway 50 suddenly drove across the roadway and hit the center divider wall east of 22nd Street, according to the CHP.
