Shortly before 10 a.m., the victim was headed north on Highway 101 when he skidded in the rain and crashed off the right side of the road. The driver was pronounced deceased at the scene, according to the CHP.

CHP officers are investigating the crash and are not releasing additional information at this time.


Local CalTrans office is corrupt. I believe the SLO to Atascadero resurfacing project went to Pavement Engineering Inc. Duck ponds all over the place, no crown to the road in multiple locations between Atascadero and 58 that were not a problem before. PEI employees apparently go to the same church as the CalTrans people awarding the contracts. And, check out the “reservoir” on 101 at Reservoir Canyon Road.


Hydroplaning area: SLOStringer died there.
