     Updated--The CHP is investigating a fatal crash near Piru Thursday afternoon.

   It was reported around 3:40 PM on westbound 126 west of Center Street in Piru.

   The CHP received reports of a Jeep Cherokee driving erratically, swerving from lane to lane and then traveling from the center divider to the right shoulder where it crashed into a utility pole, overturned and plunged off the side of the road.

    When firefighters arrived on scene, they found one person in the vehicle and pronounced them dead at the scene.

    The right lane of WB 126 was shut down in that area because of the crash, including the downed pole.

    It has since been reopened.

    No other details right now.
