lookout mountain roadOne person was killed in a Sunday morning crash near Pozo, according to the California Highway Patrol.

Shortly after 1 a.m., a dodge truck rolled more than 100 feet off Hi Mountain Lookout Road near the High Mountain Campground. It took emergency personnel several hours to reach the truck.

At 4:03 a.m., CHP determined the 22-year-old passenger was deceased and contacted the San Luis Obispo County Coroner. Officers arrested the driver, 18-year-old Paul Kravtsov of Arroyo Grande, for felony driving under the influence.

The county coroner was unable to handle the recovery, according to the CHP.

A coroner’s truck from Santa Maria was then dispatched to assist multiple agencies that had responded to the scene. The investigation is ongoing.

The question in my mind is why the SLO County Coroner was “unable to handle the recovery”… mark my words, the good Sheriff of SLO County will now be asking for a new 4×4 Monster Truck Coroner Rig, to be purchased by the taxpayers, so he can respond to dirt road deaths and tow his new pleasure craft to the latest panga boat landing site.

Please don’t give Parkinson a new toy to add to his wish list.

Drunk at night on Hi Mountain Road. Darwin was asleep at the wheel again. He should have gotten the driver too.

When will these A$$holes learn the booze and driving don’t mix?

Well, at least one of them learned “shortly after 1am” and the other, no doubt, learned just after “4:03am” if not earlier.
