Be prepared when you hit the road. Here are some quick tips on what to do if you are in a car accident.

A Selma man died after his car overturned in a Fresno County canal Monday evening.

The coroner’s office identified him as 22-year-old Luis Garcia.

He was driving east on Adams Avenue near Thompson Avenue east of Fowler when his white Scion went into the water and overturned, according to California Highway Patrol spokesman Victor Taylor.

The crash was reported around 6:40 p.m. The cause of the crash was unclear Monday.

Garcia was the only occupant in the car.

Taylor said Garcia was quickly removed from the car and taken to a hospital.
