A Yuba City man died when his car ended up in a watery ditch in Sutter County.
The 74-year-old man was driving along Tarke Road at Maroni Road west of Yuba City on Wednesday morning when his car left a curved stretch of the roadway for an unknown reason, according to the California Highway Patrol.
The car then went down a steep embankment, rolled over and came to rest upside down in a water-filled ditch. He was pronounced dead at the scene.
His name has not been released pending notification of family.
