A man killed in a crash on Highway 101 near Windsor was identified by family members Thursday as Swannie L. Cookman.

Witnesses told officers the driver hit cement barriers with his Dodge pickup. The truck then ran through a fence and stopped in a field.

Emergency crews performed CPR but could not revive the driver.

Family members said he suffered a heart attack just before the crash.
