Police responded to reports of a collision near the intersection of Highway 1 and Hancock Drive shortly after 2 a.m., just north of Lompoc, according to Sgt. Scott Morgan. 

Upon arrival, officers located the vehicle and its driver, Mark Morrow, a resident of Lompoc. 

Investigators determined Morrow's vehicle, a 2021 Audi, had drifted off the road, struck several traffic signs and flipped at least once, according to Morgan.

Morrow was ejected, and emergency responders pronounced him dead at the scene.
