A Texas truck driver has been charged in connection with a crash that took the life of a Tehachapi man.
In August, police say 38-year-old Heath Crowder was headed east on Tehachapi Boulevard near the Highway 58 on-ramp, when the driver of a tractor trailer made a left turn in front of him.
Crowder hit the semi and died at the scene.
The driver of the truck, Deborah van Dyke, 52, was not injured.
She faces a misdemeanor vehicular manslaughter charge.
