Fresno man injured in Highway 70 crash in Sutter County

A Fresno man suffered major injuries after he lost control of his pickup truck this afternoon on Highway 70 near the Highway 99 connector in Sutter County.

According to the California Highway Patrol, Allan D. Beck II, 26, was driving a 1990 Chevy 1500 southbound on Highway 70 about 1:43 p.m. when he failed to negotiate a curve just before the connector to southbound Highway 99. The truck continued in a straight path down an embankment and through some trees in the grassy area separating the two highways, according to a CHP news release.

The vehicle flipped and landed on its wheels facing northwest.

Officers said Beck was not wearing a seat belt and was tossed around inside the vehicle. He was transported to UC Davis Medical Center.

Minutes before the crash, the CHP's dispatch center had received a call reporting a vehicle matching the description of Beck's truck traveling at a high speed. Officials said the crash is under investigation and it has not been determined whether Beck's vehicle was the one reported by the caller. They said alcohol and drugs do not appear to have been factors in the crash.
