50-year-old male driver killed in North San Juan accident

A 50-year-old man was found fatally injured around 7:30 p.m. Tuesday night near North San Juan, according to the North San Juan Fire Department.

He was reportedly driving a 1974 Ford F250 eastbound on Moonshine Road at an unknown speed and his vehicle veered off the right side of the road onto the dirt shoulder, according to a press release by Grass Valley California Highway Patrol.

The vehicle then struck a stump and continued to veer to the right, down an embankment where the front end struck a tree, the report said.

The driver was found by two bicyclists who reported the collision. He was pronounced dead at the scene.

The Union will report more information after next of kin is contacted by law enforcement officials.
