Pictures from the Madera Tribune show the damage of the car after it flipped over.

The woman died at the scene. A passenger suffered serious injuries. He was airlifted to the hospital.

The C.H.P. says alcohol is being investigated as a cause of the crash. The passenger told C.H.P. officers the two had been drinking just before to the crash.
