An 18-year-old Scotts Valley man died on Thursday after the car he was in went off an embankment and plunged into an agricultural pond in Davenport, according to the California Highway Patrol.

Joseph Freeman-Dellamora was sitting in the passenger seat of a 1999 Land Rover driven by a 49-year-old man from Davenport.

The driver of the Land Rover suffered minor injuries but was not hospitalized.
