Police said Wilkerson lost control of the truck in the 10300 block of Rockaway Hills Road as he was driving on a downhill curve and struck a bridge near the Desert Highlands neighborhood about 10 a.m., according to police. He was pronounced dead at the scene.

The crash caused the barrel full of concrete to be ejected from the truck and land onto a nearby path for golf carts, police said.

Rockaway Hills Road remains closed for bridge repairs, police said.
