The California Highway Patrol said the septic tanker went across a frontage road and then through a barrier. The truck ultimately slammed into a Mercedes-Benz and a pickup truck.

The vehicles crashed on southbound Highway 17 near Bear Creek Road. The driver of the pickup, a San Jose man in his 30s, died as a result of the collision.

Paramedics took the passenger in the Mercedes and the operator of the tanker to a hospital for treatment of minor wounds. The names of the deceased and wounded parties have not been yet released.
