The Paso Robles man was driving a 1994 Mazda on Highway 33 near Coalinga when he veered out of his lane and into oncoming traffic. A vehicle heading north with five passengers, all of whom also came from Paso Robles, struck the Mazda.
Emergency responders airlifted the Mazda driver to a Fresno hospital, where doctors later declared him dead.
Each of the passengers in the other vehicle also suffered injuries. An ambulance transported them to Hanford Medical Center for treatment.
Officials have not yet released the name of the man who died. They identified the two adults in the other vehicle as Scott Martini, 33, and Roselle Martini, 32.
The Martinis and three children in the vehicle each suffered minor to moderate injuries.
