A Lake Sherwood man died late Sunday night when his Cadillac Escalade left the road and crashed into a tree in Thousand Oaks, officials said Monday.

Keith Jump, 55, was traveling north on Westlake Boulevard just north of Evenstar Avenue shortly before midnight when his 2008 Cadillac went off the road and plowed into a large tree, Ventura County Sheriff's Department officials said.

Investigators are still working to determine why Jump’s vehicle left the road. He was alone at the time of the accident. Jump suffered blunt force trauma injuries and was pronounced dead at the scene, according to investigators.
