SUTTER COUNTY - One person is dead and another is in the hospital Thursday evening after a head-on crash on a Sutter County road, the CHP said.

The first call of the crash came in around 3 p.m. in the area of W. Riego Road and Pacific Avenue, which is just east of Highway 99. 

Officers said a Toyota Corolla was heading east on W Riego Road when a pickup truck towing a Bobcat was heading west. 

The driver of the Corolla crossed the double yellow lines and crashed head-on with the pickup truck, officers said. 

The driver of the Corolla, a 24-year-old Roseville man, died at the scene.

The driver of the pickup truck, a 55-year-old from Sacramento, was taken to the hospital with minor injuries. Another person in the pickup truck complained of injuries. 

Alcohol and drugs do not appear to be a factor in the crash, the CHP said.
