A Woodbridge man was killed in a crash on Woodbridge Road on Sunday afternoon, according to the California Highway Patrol.
The man, 52, was driving eastbound in a Ford pickup on west Woodbridge Road at what witnesses called a high rate of speed. The driver lost control of the truck, crossed into the westbound lane and landed in the dirt running alongside a vineyard. Officers say the truck rolled over several times and came to rest across both lanes of the road. The driver was not wearing a seatbelt and was thrown from the vehicle, which was severely damaged, the CHP said.
The Woodbridge Fire Department was called to the scene at 4:40 p.m. and later described the man’s condition as critical when he was transported to Lodi Memorial Hospital. The man was pronounced dead at the hospital.
Alcohol is suspected as a factor in the crash, the CHP said. The driver's name has been withheld until family can be notified.
