The preliminary investigation says that the driver of a 2019 Mazda 6 was going northbound on Highway one and, for some reason, went into the southbound lane. That's when the Mazda and a 2005 Toyota Corolla crashed.

Debris from the crash hit a 2001 Ford F250 parked on the west median of Highway 1.

According to CHP, the two occupants of the Mazda received minor injuries, but the driver of the Toyota Corolla died of their injuries on the scene. Drugs and alcohol are not currently considered factors in this crash.

There have been no arrests made, but CHP said this crash is still being investigated.


CHP officers confirmed one person has died after a crash occurred on the crossing of Highway 1 and Potrero road.

Officers were called to the scene Saturday evening just before 5 p.m.
