A woman died following a crash on Highway 1 near Morro Bay Saturday evening.

Shortly before 6:30 p.m., a 71-year-old Turlock man, who had been driving northbound on Highway 1 in a Honda CRV, attempted a left turn at San Luisito Creek Road. The driver turned into the path of a Kia Optima headed southbound on Highway 1.

The Honda and the Kia collided. After the initial collision, a vehicle driven by a 66-year-old Morro Bay woman crashed into the Kia, further injuring a 50-year-old Visalia man.

Each of the drivers involved in the collision suffered major injuries and were transported to the hospital. A female passenger in the Honda was also transported to the hospital, where she was pronounced dead.

Following the crash, authorities closed the southbound lanes of Highway 1 in the area for nearly two hours.

This could have been Me 2 weeks ago! At that same road! I was traveling North bound in the fast lane. A Girl with Dreaglocks in a RED Car, comes flying out from the left, across the southbound lanes, to make a left toward Morro Bay, and RIGHT in front of ME! I could not believe she would so dangerously enter the highway! I was forced to slam on the brakes and swerve into the right lane. Or Smash right into her! Thank GOD no one was in the right lane. Took me an hour to calm down, When I saw this “Chick” pull out from that road, I could NOT believe she could be so Stupid, put both of our lives in danger! These are the people dealing with this Alternate Detour to the South Bay ramps. How long is this company building the sewer going to Block South Bay? Do they realize the impact is more than just inconvenient?
