A Sacramento man has died about a week after suffering injuries in a crash on Highway 99 in Elk Grove.

Leroy Bradford Brown, 86, died at 6:45 p.m. Thursday. The California Highway Patrol said that Brown was involved in a collision when driving at 4:20 a.m. May 27 on northbound Highway 99 south of Elk Grove Boulevard.

Although details were not available Friday, the CHP said Brown was driving a 2002 Mercedes when he was in the crash with a large truck. The Mercedes rolled as a result of the collision, causing injury to Brown and an 86-year-old female passenger.

Both were taken to the hospital. The CHP did not have information on the condition of the passenger or the truck driver.

The report on the collision has not been finalized, and fault in the crash has not been determined, the CHP said.
