California Highway Patrol police say the sedan was apparently heading north on the freeway when it suddenly crossed the southbound lane and hit a pickup truck.
The sedan driver died at the crash site. The truck driver was taken to a hospital near Modesto. His condition is still unknown.
CHP officers are investigating the case. They say there is a curve on the road where the crash occurred and that speed may have been a factor.
