A 41-year-old Calipatria man died after being involved in a traffic collision Monday afternoon at the intersection of Holt and Norrish roads, county coroner’s office announced.

Arturo Gonzalez was traveling in a GMC truck when a Volvo tractor with trailer combination broadsided his vehicle. The collision caused the GMC and Gonzalez to plunge into the nearby Rositas Canal, where the vehicle became completely submerged.
