At noon Saturday, Dec. 26, Thomas Bennett, 72, of Carlsbad, was driving his blue 2011 Dodge Ram truck east on Highway 74 east of Santa Rosa Truck Trail when he hit an icy patch, ran up onto the embankment and overturned.

According to California Highway Patrol Public Information Officer Darren Meyer, Bennett was driving too fast for roadway conditions when he came to a sweeping turn that was ice-covered, causing his truck to overturn and come back onto the highway.

Both Bennett and his passenger, Deborah Bennett, 66, also of Carlsbad, suffered minor injuries and were transported by an American Medical Response ambulance to Desert Regional Medical Center in Palm Springs.

No other vehicles were involved in the crash.
