Gridley >> A man died when he lost control of a Ford F-150 at about 1:10 p.m. Sunday on East Evans Reimer Road.

Matthew J. Haley, 38, of Gridley, was driving west when the pickup drifted onto the north shoulder of the road, according to a press release from the California Highway Patrol. It is unknown why he drifted across the road.

When Haley tried to get back on the road, he lost control and crashed into a drainage ditch, according to CHP. The F-150 rolled several times before stopping.

Emergency crews had to use extrication tools to get Haley out of the truck, but Haley did not survive.
