A man ejected from his truck and seriously injured in a crash on Highway 4 Monday morning later died of his injuries, according to the California Highway Patrol.
Officers responded to reports of a crash in the westbound lanes of SR4 east of Mc Ewen Road at approximately 10:45 a.m. and found an overturned white Ford Ranger on its roof with its driver ejected into the middle lanes of traffic.
The unidentified driver was taken to a hospital where he was later pronounced dead.
There were no other reported injuries. Investigators blocked off at least one lane of traffic until all lanes reopened just before 12:25 p.m.
