Developing news out of Yuba County.

Where the CHP is investigating a freak accident that left one man dead.

Investigators say the man was crushed to death by a gravel truck that flipped over Monday afternoon.

Officers say he had been standing beside his disabled Dodge Ram on Highway 70 at the Earle Road on-ramp just south of Marysville when a semi truck trailer tipped over.

The gravel and part of the truck landed on the man killing him.

CHP said, "Unfortunately, right at that time there was a disabled vehicle on the on-ramp. And the occupant was outside his vehicle."

The on-ramp was closed for several hours while officers cleared the scene.

The driver of the truck, identified as 54-year-old Christine Straub was hospitalized for mild to moderate injuries.

No word yet if she'll face any charges.

Today was hot and tomorrow will be as well. But slightly below average temperatures move in as we see a dip in the jet stream.
