By From page A1 | October 25, 2013

A man died after his truck went down an embankment on Oct. 18 and he was ejected from the vehicle.

Rodney Anderson, 66, of Placerville, was driving his red Dodge Ram pickup truck at an unsafe speed westbound on Highway 50 near Greenstone Road when he lost control, according to the CHP.

The truck went across the center divider into eastbound lanes before traveling off the highway. It went down a steep embankment and hit the hillside. Anderson, who CHP believe was not wearing a seatbelt, was ejected from the truck, sustaining fatal injuries.
