Fatal Templeton accident victim identified

April 7, 2016

CHP@The California Highway Patrol has identified the woman who was killed in a single car accident early Thursday morning as 19-year-old Karina Almaguer Lopez of Paso Robles.

Shortly after midnight, Lopez was headed northbound on Highway 101 over the Main Street overpass in Templeton when her 2007 Kia Optima drifted off the road, crashed into a metal guard rail and then collided with a concrete column that helps support the overpass.

Lopez was pronounced dead at the scene. It is currently unknown if alcohol or drugs were a factor in this collision.


How does a car “drift off ” the freeway?

More to this story, I think.


So horrifying for a family to lose a child. I hope they are blessed with peace.
