Person killed in Santa Margarita crash
April 30, 2016
A woman died Saturday after an oncoming drunk driver drove into her lane and caused a head-on collision. At the time of the crash, traffic on Highway 58 was heavy because of attendees leaving a concert at the Pozo Saloon.
Shortly after 6 p.m., a blue Toyota crashed head on into a white Saturn. The driver of the Toyota was pronounced dead at the scene of the crash on Highway 58 about a half mile outside of Santa Margarita.
Emergency personnel transported the driver of the Saturn, who was suffering from major injuries, to Sierra Vista Regional Medical Center. CHP officers placed the Saturn’s driver under arrest for DUI at the hospital.
The names of the driver and the victim have not yet been released.
