Police on Tuesday, July 30, identified 73-year-old Pedro Rosales Arteaga as the driver who died as a result of a vehicle crash on Saturday, July 27.
The Tracy resident was driving south on Holly Drive around 10:05 p.m. when he allegedly lost control of his Dodge truck, according to Sgt. Kami Ysit of the Tracy Police Department.
Rosales struck a metal sign, a light pole and a bus stop bench and shelter before hitting a wall on the 1100 block of Holly Drive, just north of 11th Street.
He was taken by ambulance “to a local hospital,” where he died about three hours later from undisclosed injuries, Ysit said.
She was unsure of the hospital’s name but said it was not Sutter Tracy Community Hospital.
No other passengers were in the vehicle, and no other injuries were reported, Ysit said.
The crash is still under investigation.
