Fatal crash between box truck and Jeep leaves one man dead in Tehama County
According to the news release, California Highway Patrol responded to the car accident at around 3:40 a.m. just north of Gyle Road near Corning, where they confirmed that one person was killed.
Upon further investigation, it was reported that an unidentified 21-year-old man was driving a 2017 Jeep, traveling in the northbound lanes of traffic. The driver struck a guardrail at an undetermined rate of speed, losing control. The car swerved before coming to rest in the right lane of the highway.
Simultaneously, a box truck was traveling northbound on the highway and was not able to stop in time, crashing into the Jeep, said officials. As a result, the driver of the Jeep died on scene. The identity of the deceased victim was withheld from the news release, pending the notification of next-of-kin.
