A northbound car collided with two pedestrians crossing Ocean Avenue near 7th Street around 6:30 p.m. Saturday, the California Highway Patrol says. Sierra Vista Regional Medical Center has since pronounced Manualo Karako, 87, dead and Sandra Karako, 66, remains in critical condition.

Both Karakos were residents of San Luis Obispo, as is the driver Rhiannon Carroll, 32.

The CHP does not suspect drugs or alcohol factored into the crash. Carroll remained at the scene of the collision while emergency workers arrived. Officers did not make any arrests.
