A San Jose man died early Sunday morning when his car crashed into a truck that had overturned on Highway 101 minutes earlier.
The 63-year-old man was killed at about 4:20 a.m. when his silver 2009 Toyota Camry slammed into a red 1999 GMC Sierra truck that was wrecked in the northbound lanes of Highway 101, south of Story Road, according to Alicia Moreno . a spokeswoman for the California Highway Patrol.
His name has not been released, pending notification to next of kin.
Just a few minutes earlier, the driver of the GMC appeared to lose control of the truck, causing it to flip over on the highway, Moreno said. The truck’s driver appeared to escape unscathed just before the truck was hit by the Camry.
The truck driver was arrested on suspicion of drunk driving and vehicular manslaughter, Moreno said.
The wrecks closed part of the highway for just over two hours.
