Yolo County coroner’s officials are awaiting the results of toxicology tests before ruling what caused the death of a Sacramento man whose truck crashed in Clarksburg early Tuesday morning.
California Highway Patrol investigators say 68-year-old Jose Gomez was en route to turn on a water pump for a local field when the Ford F-250 he was driving ran off Willow Point Road and overturned into a water-filled ditch. The wreckage was discovered shortly after 6 a.m. Tuesday.
“We don’t know about alcohol (being involved), but we’re definitely looking into that,” Chief Deputy Coroner Robert LaBrash said Wednesday. He also said Gomez was not wearing a seat belt at the time of the crash.
The Ford truck was registered to the Ramos Oil Company of West Sacramento, according to the CHP.
