An unidentified 29-year-old man was killed after a fiery two-vehicle collision in Marysville on Tuesday morning, October 12.
The accident happened in the area of Hammonton-Smartsville Road and Dollitle Drive, just outside Beale Air Force Base, at approximately 7:00 a.m.
A silver 2008 Infiniti was heading east at high speeds on Hammonton-Smartville when the driver lost control of his vehicle and veered into the northbound lanes.
The 2008 Infiniti then collided head-on with a westbound Clark Pest Control Ford F-150 on the northbound lanes. The Infiniti then caught fire after the crash. The driver of the Infiniti was trapped in the burning car and was, unfortunately, pronounced dead at the scene.
The pickup truck driver complained of pain was declined treatment. It’s unclear whether drugs or alcohol played a role in the accident. Both vehicles were towed away from the scene. Local authorities are further investigating the cause of the collision.
