paso crashThree people were killed in two of the multiple auto collisions that occurred on Wednesday during the afternoon rain.

Shortly before 3 p.m., a 31-year-old Nipomo man was killed in a head on collision on Highway 154 in Santa Barbara County. Susan Jorgensen of Santa Ynez suffered minor injuries in the collision.

About an hour later, two people were killed in a collision on Highway 46 near Union Road in Paso Robles. The driver of a small passenger car was attempting to cross the highway when they drove in the path of a large pickup truck. Both occupants of the passenger car were killed.

Paso Robles police have not yet released the names of the deceased or the condition of the truck’s occupants.



Very sad, indeed. Always a good reminder to drivers young and old… better to be late than to not arrive at all. My condolences to the families and friends.


So sad.
