A 57-year-old El Sobrante man died in a solo-vehicle crash on westbound state Highway 24 in Lafayette late Monday afternoon, according to the California Highway Patrol.
The crash was reported at 4:38 p.m. on westbound Highway 24 east of Pleasant Hill Road.
A 2017 white GMC Sierra was heading west when it veered across all lanes of traffic and up a dirt embankment north of the highway, then struck a metal pole. The driver, whose name is not yet being released, was pronounced dead at the scene, CHP officials said.
Anyone who may have more information about the crash is asked to call the CHP’s Contra Costa-area office at (925) 646-4980.
