Windsor crash victim was Santa Rosa man, 55

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

The 55-year-old Santa Rosa man was killed Wednesday in a single-vehicle accident at the Central Windsor exit, the CHP said. The accident happened about 1:30 p.m.

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.
