KSBY reports the victim was a man in his late teens. At about 3 p.m., the teen was driving southbound in the fast lane of Highway 1 when he veered to the right for an unknown reason.

The teen’s vehicle went off the road and crashed head-on into a large eucalyptus tree. The victim reportedly died upon impact.

No one else was inside the vehicle. Southbound traffic on Highway 1 backed up to the California Men’s Colony following the crash.

Authorities are currently withholding the victim’s identity.

It is a tragedy. There will be an investigation as is usual in any traffic fatality like this. Hoping the cell phone was not active at the time.

Every parent’s nightmare. To get that call so close to the holidays is even more heartbreaking. Condolences to his family and friends.

Drugs, suicide, or a cat nobody saw, we might never know.

I saw this yesterday. That big SUV was about half the size it usually is after hitting the tree. Very sad.

That is a real shame
