Merced, CA — An unidentified 64-year-old man is dead from injuries suffered in a single vehicle accident on La Grange Road last night.
Officers say the man was driving a 1984 Lincoln southbound at a high rate of speed just before 11:00 when the car left the road on a curve.
A report says the car overturned as it traveled through a barbed wire fence and came to rest in a field.
The driver was reportedly ejected and was found in the field a short distance from the car. The man suffered serious trauma and was pronounced dead at the scene.
Police say the man was traveling alone and there were no other vehicles involved in the accident.
