Authorities spent the day Tuesday trying to determine why the driver of a pickup truck left an off-ramp from Interstate 505 and plowed through a fence in a crash that left two people dead.

California Highway Patrol Officer Manuel Camarena said Tuesday that the crash scene was found shortly before 2:10 p.m. Monday at the Gaddini Road off-ramp of northbound I-505 just south of Putah Creek Road.

The driver of a 1999 Ford F-150 pickup truck turned off the roadway for unknown reasons, crashed through a chain-link fence and drove into an orchard before crashing into a tree, Camarena said.

The final crash scene was approximately 40 feet off the roadway.

Camarena said a man, 72, and a woman, 71, both Alameda residents, died in the crash. Both were found dead inside the vehicle, he said. Their names were withheld Monday and Tuesday pending family notification.

Alcohol is not suspected as a factor in the single-vehicle crash, Camarena said.
