SAN JOSE — A driver was killed when a delivery truck went off the roadway on Interstate 680, hit a light pole and caught fire Sunday afternoon, according to the California Highway Patrol.
The crash was reported about 2:51 p.m. in the southbound lanes approaching the North Capitol Avenue offramp when a yellow box truck veered into the right-hand shoulder of the freeway, the CHP reported.
The impact sheared a light pole that landed on the truck, which caught fire shortly afterward. Crews from the San Jose Fire Department responded to the scene and put out the blaze.
No other vehicles appear to have been involved in the crash, which remains under investigation. Additional details were not immediately released Sunday.
