GORMAN (CBS) — A driver Sunday was killed in an collision involving two pickup trucks on the northbound Golden State (5) Freeway near Pyramid Lake.

The crash, which took place just south of Vista Del Lago, occurred about 6:30 a.m., the California Highway Patrol said.

One person was declared dead at the scene and a helicopter took a critically injured person to a hospital.

Snow fell overnight along the Grapevine section of the freeway, though the interstate stayed open.

It was unclear if the weather played a role in the wreck, which triggered a secondary collision.
