A Bakersfield man who died after crashing into the back of a pickup towing a trailer has been identified.

Edgar Eduardo Rojas, 24, died in the 5:55 a.m. crash Wednesday at the intersection of Wilson and Wible roads, according to the coroner's office. 

Rojas, driving a black sedan west on Wilson, entered the intersection and collided with a pickup heading north on Wible, according to police. The pickup's trailer became disconnected and hit a white sedan stopped in the southbound left turn lane.

The pickup driver suffered minor injuries, and the driver of the white sedan was uninjured.
