Stanislaus County, California – A 62-year-old Gilroy man was killed in a Stanislaus County

Truck Crash that happened Saturday evening on Crows Landing Road.

According to a California Highway Patrol report, the crash involved a 1998 GMC pickup truck towing a one-axle trailer and a 2015 Volvo semi and happened at around 6:30 p.m. just north of Ehrlich Road.

The Gilroy man was driving the GMC pickup southbound on Crows Landing Road when, for unknown reasons, swerved into the northbound lane and collided with the Volvo driven by Baljit Sighh Mann, 39, of Modesto.

The truck driver was killed in the crash. Mann was not injured.

The Volvo truck was pulling a refrigerated trailer containing 30,000 pounds of lettuce. The vehicle went off the edge of the road and came to a stop in a cornfield.

CHP said the pickup driver was not wearing a seatbelt at the time of the crash and was ejected from the vehicle following the impact.

The identity of the deceased remained undisclosed pending family notification.

It was not immediately determined if alcohol or drugs played a role in the crash.

Police are investigating the crash.
