One per­son died in a rollover crash in Reed­ley early Sat­ur­day morn­ing, ac­cord­ing to fire of­fi­cials.

First-re­spon­ders ar­rived at the crash scene off Manning Av­enue near the Kings River and across from the Edge­wa­ter Inn just be­fore 2 a.m., ac­cord­ing to a Face­book post from the Reed­ley Fire­men’s As­so­ci­a­tion.

A pickup had rolled 10 to 15 feet down an em­bank­ment and smashed into a tree. One per­son in­side the pickup was pro­nounced dead on scene, but fire crews re­mained at the scene for two hours as it was a chal­lenge to ex­tri­cate the body, ac­cord­ing to the post. It is not clear if any­one else was in the pickup.

Reed­ley po­lice, the Cal­i­for­nia High­way Pa­trol, the Se­quoia Safety Coun­cil, Cal Fire and the Reed­ley Fire De­part­ment as­sisted with the in­ci­dent.

The cause of the crash is still un­der in­ves­ti­ga­tion by CHP.
