A man died after his vehicle overturned during a pursuit on U.S. Highway 101 in the South Bay early Sunday morning, according to the California Highway Patrol.

The CHP sent out details Tuesday morning of the pursuit that was first reported at 1:03 a.m. Sunday involving a Ford Mustang that did not yield for a suspected DUI enforcement stop on northbound Highway 101 north of Leavesley Road in Gilroy.

The Mustang continued north until it sideswiped a 2012 Chevrolet Silverado south of Coyote Creek Golf Drive south of San Jose and overturned, coming to rest on its roof, trapping the driver inside, according to the CHP.

The driver, whose name has not been released, succumbed to his injuries from the crash. The driver and passenger in the Silverado were uninjured.
