    Santa Rosa Man Dies Following Collision With Recycling Truck

    A male driver of a Honda Civic died in a head-on crash with a Recology truck near a U.S. Highway 101 overpass this morning, the California Highway Patrol said.

    Sergio Ramirez, 50, of Santa Rosa was driving the truck west on River Road around 4:45 a.m. when it collided head-on with the Honda that was traveling east in the westbound lane of River Road, CHP Officer David deRutte said.

    The truck driver braked and the Honda driver tried to swerve to the right before the collision, deRutte said.

    Ramirez was not injured and the Honda driver died at the scene, deRutte said.
