The victim was driving a burgundy Ford F-150 pickup truck eastbound at the above address when he failed to maintain a single lane, left the roadway and struck a curb. The impact caused the truck to spin and roll over, dislodging steel and concrete barriers in an esplanade. The truck then caught fire.

No other persons or vehicles were involved in the crash. The investigation is continuing.
