A 37-year-old Palmdale man died Saturday night in a single-vehicle crash in the Agua Dulce area northeast of Santa Clarita, an apparent victim of "driver fatigue," according to the California Highway Patrol.

Eduardo Hernandez was driving a 1999 Toyota Camry northbound on the Antelope Valley Freeway, north of Agua Dulce Canyon Road, when his car went over the shoulder on the right side of the freeway and struck a hillside, the California Highway Patrol reported.

An officer was making a traffic stop nearby about 7 p.m. Saturday when he heard a loud noise to the south and went to investigate, finding Hernandez and the damaged car beside the road, authorities said.

Hernandez died at the scene.
