SAN JOAQUIN COUNTY – A driver has died after crashing into a farm equipment vehicle near Linden early Wednesday morning.

California Highway Patrol says first responders arrived at the scene near E. Comstock and Duncan Road, a rural area north of Linden, just after 5 a.m.

As officers discovered, a pickup truck rear-ended an agriculture sprayer vehicle. The crash caused the pickup to overturn – and the driver was partially ejected, officers say.

The driver of the truck was pronounced dead at the scene by medics, CHP says. The name of the driver has not been released at this time, but he has been identified by CHP as a 59-year-old Lockeford resident.

No other vehicles were involved.
