One man is dead and another is arrested after a car went over a cliff in Friant.

The accident happened around 1 p.m. Saturday near Sky Harbour Rd. and Millerton Rd.

CHP officers say 20-year-old Jose Ramos was driving too fast on the curvy roads when he lost control and drove the car a cliff.

Ramos and his passenger rolled close to 100 feet down the mountain before coming to a stop.

Ramos was able to escape the vehicle and climb up the embankment with moderate injuries.

His passenger, however, sustained fatal injuries and died at the scene.

Ramos was charged with vehicular manslaughter and will booked into the Fresno County Jail once he is released from the hospital.
