The crash occurred around 2:15 p.m. on Foothill Boulevard near Blue Granite Lane. California Highway Patrol officers say that a northbound driver of a Toyota Prius veered onto the wrong side of the road and hit a Ford escape traveling south.
Emergency responders had to extricate both drivers from their vehicles before taking them to the hospital. The male driver of the Escape died from his injuries, while the Prius driver survived with major injuries.
An investigation into the crash is ongoing. No charges have been announced, and the CHP has yet to release the names of the individuals involved.
