Adam Begazo was returning to San Luis Obispo in his Toyota 4Runner around 3:45 a.m. when he struck the center divider. Begazo’s vehicle then rolled over and landed upside down on Highway 101 just north of the State Beaches exit in Ventura.
Begazo and his two passengers escaped safely from the vehicle, but a van driven by an Oxnard man then crashed into the overturned SUV, striking the three men as well. Begazo died on the scene, and one passenger, 22-year-old San Luis Obispo resident Jacob Wolfe, suffered major injuries.
An ambulance transported Wolfe to a local hospital. The second passenger, 21-year-old San Luis Obispo resident Christopher Stevens, received treatment for minor injuries.
The Ventura man who was driving the van, 63-year-old Michael White, did not suffer any injuries.
