Somis, CA (May 27, 2020) – A motor vehicle accident Tuesday morning claimed one man’s life.
At around 8:44 a.m., on May 26, authorities were called to the scene of a motor vehicle accident on California Highway 118.
Reports show that a 2004 Nissan sedan and a flatbed truck collided head-on along the highway near the intersection with La Cuesta Road. The impact of the collision caused the Nissan to turn around. It was then struck by a second 18-wheeler.
The sedan then caught on fire, but the fire was extinguished quickly. A Hyundai sedan was traveling through the intersection when it became involved in the collision after striking debris in the road.
The 28-year-old male driver of the Nissan was pronounced dead at the scene of the accident.
At this time, the California Highway Patrol is investigating.
Our deepest condolences go out to the family of the man who lost his life in this accident.
