The motorcyclist collided with a vehicle near San Geronimo Road in Cayucos at about 11:50 a.m. California Highway Patrol officials have not yet released further details.

Just after 5 p.m., a vehicle driving in the wrong lane hit the 19-year-old’s car head on. The crash occurred on South Bay Boulevard in Los Osos.

Emergency responders pronounced the 19-year-old dead on the scene after removing him from his vehicle and attempting to resuscitate him.

Officials have not yet released the name of the victim.

After the crash, officers arrested 22-year-old Alexander Gonzales, of Paso Robles, for driving under the influence during the collision. Gonzales was driving the vehicle that swerved into the wrong lane and hit the 19-year-old’s car.

Gonzales’s vehicle also crashed into a pickup truck, which had stopped on the shoulder of the road. The driver of the truck did not suffer any injuries.

    Awfully expensive cocktail, eh Gonzoles? It cost an innocent life and your innocence in prison. Hell of a way to grow up and hell of a way to sober up. Alcohol: Taking you places you never dreamed you would go….

      The article just states that Gonzales was “driving under the influence”- it doesn’t specify alcohol. He might have ingested some other illegal or improper substance.

      Let’s hope subsequent articles will give more info, such as what substance, and whether this was his first such arrest.

      Regardless, he’ll probably be back out on the road behind the wheel in no time flat.
