James Allen Keith, 60, was pronounced dead at the scene after the 11:30 p.m. Thursday wreck, the State Patrol said, adding that he was not wearing a seat belt.
He was headed south on Highway 101 in a 2005 Chevrolet pickup truck near the intersection of Pleasant Harbor Road when the truck went into a roadside ditch, the State Patrol said.
He swerved to the right to come out of it; his truck crossed the centerline, went over an embankment on the northbound side and struck a tree, troopers said.
The truck was destroyed.
Highway 101 was blocked for a little more than four hours while troopers investigated the wreck.
The State Patrol continues to investigate why Keith’s truck left the road.
