Man, 20, Dies In Single-Car Accident Near Galt

GALT (CBS13) – A young man headed to work early this morning died after losing control of his vehicle and smashing into a tree near Galt, according to the California Highway Patrol.

CHP says 20-year old Ryan Vlavianos was driving on westbound Twin Cities Road near Hardesty Lane when he crashed just before 6:00 a.m.

Vlavianos, who was driving a white Nissan Sentra, apparently started to swerve off the road, then overcorrected and ended up driving off the road and smashing into a tree.

He was pronounced dead at the scene.

No other injuries were reported.

Westbound lanes were closed so crews could tow the remnants of the car.
