Crash Victim Still Not Identified

The identity of a man who died in a crash Sunday night in Trinity County has not been publicly released and the family has not been notified. At around 6:15PM, the man was driving a 1997 Chevy Silverado pickup westbound on Highway 36 near the community of Wildwood about 4 miles east of the Highway 3 crossroads. The truck left the north edge of the road, went down a steep bank, overturned, and was stopped by a tree. The driver was ejected on impact and died at the scene. Neither the Trinity County Coroner's Office nor the CHP has released the victim's name. In fact, Tuesday morning the Trinity Area CHP told us that the identity hasn't even been confirmed, pending a check of fingerprints.
