November 12, 2013
A 19-year-old Paso Robles girl was killed Monday when the SUV she was driving rolled several times and caught fire.
Shortly after 4 p.m., Jeanette Montes was driving the Ford Explorer northbound on Highway 101 near the Highway 46 West on-ramp when she lost control of the vehicle for unknown reasons. The vehicle then rolled several times before catching fire.
The teen’s two younger brothers were with her in the car and suffered minor injuries. A witness to the accident helped the boys get out of the vehicle.
Following the crash, traffic was backed up for about three hours resulting in several minor collisions.
