A male driver died Wednesday night after his vehicle, for an unknown reason, veered off the roadway and landed in the Central Main Canal near Austin Road as he was driving on northbound Highway 86.

The driver, whose identity has yet to be released but was confirmed to reside out of the county, was the only occupant in the vehicle, a pickup truck, at the time of the collision.
