Man killed in Highway 4 wreckage that went undetected for hours

A driver was killed Sunday morning in an accident on Highway 4 that left the wreckage undetected for nearly seven hours. His passenger was rescued from the car, upside down in a ditch.

The crash was reported at 7:15 a.m. just west of the Middle River Bridge and 8 miles east of Discovery Bay, the California Highway Patrol said.

A 2005 Infiniti G35 had apparently been heading east on the two-lane highway when it veered onto the dirt road, hit a utility pole, then flipped over and landed on its roof in the water-filled ditch. The CHP estimates the accident happened at 12:30 p.m.

The first emergency call reported a man “yelling in the roadway” – apparently a passing motorist who had seen the wreckage – and two people in the car, one of whom did not respond.

The driver, a 25-year-old Manteca man, died at the scene. A 27-year-old Manteca woman was rescued from the car and taken to hospital with minor injuries.

Alcohol and drugs have not been ruled out as factors in the accident, the highway patrol said.
