LODI (April 24, 2018) – A 29-year-old man was killed in a traffic collision on Highway 99 near Armstrong Road Sunday morning, according to Lodi News-Sentinel.
Officials said the accident happened at about 4:51 a.m. when the driver of a 1999 Toyota allowed his car to drift onto the shoulder of northbound Highway 99. The Toyota reportedly continued to veer left across all lanes and ended up crashing into the center median.
