California Highway Patrol officers received a call about the crash around 11:30 p.m. on La Orilla. When emergency crews arrived, they found the car wrapped around a tree.
Paramedics said they had a difficult time getting to the driver due to a swarm of bees.
The unidentified driver suffered non-life threatening injuries, according to authorities.
Investigators said alcohol or drugs may have been a factor in the crash.
