Driver dies after truck veers off Highway 160

One person died early Friday afternoon when a pickup truck crashed off Highway 160 near Highway 12 in south Sacramento County.

The crash occurred shortly after noon. A silver Dodge Ram pickup was northbound on Highway 160 just south of Highway 12, east of the Rio Vista Bridge, when it veered off the east side of the road onto the shoulder and into a ditch. The truck then rolled over at least twice, said Officer Michael Bradley, California Highway Patrol spokesman.

The driver, the only occupant of the vehicle, was pronounced dead at the scene.

The man has not been identified pending notification of family.
