Columbia, CA — The CHP has released the name of the man that was killed in a crash Wednesday on State Street in Columbia.
68-year-old Eugene Cummings drove his 1997 Chrysler off the roadway at 1:20pm. He swiped a tree, slammed through a row of mailboxes, and collided head-on with a pine tree. Cummings was transported to Sonora Regional Medical Center where he was later pronounced dead.
The CHP reports that it is unknown if the crash is solely responsible for Cummings death, or if he had a medical issue, prior to the accident. Details related to the crash are still under investigation.
