San Benito Co, CA (August 12, 2020) – One person was killed and another person sustained critical injuries during an accident involving a single-vehicle along Highway 25.

According to a report published by a local news source, initial investigations into the crash revealed that a Toyota Tacoma that was heading northbound on Highway 25 attempted to make a righthand turn off of the roadway. The abrupt maneuver caused the driver of the Toyota to lose control of the vehicle, swerve off of the roadway and crash into a nearby tree.

Emergency medical personnel and local law enforcement officers were both dispatched to the scene of the accident. On their arrival, they located the driver, a 21-year-old male, who was trapped inside of his vehicle. The victim was extricated and transported to Natividad where he died a short while later. 

Officials involved with the crash investigation continue to withhold the identity of the deceased victim until they receive confirmation and his next of kin has been notified.

Paramedics working the scene also stated that the passenger, a 20-year-old male from Morgan Hill, sustained critical injuries caused by the collision. He was transported via ambulance to Natividad for emergency medical treatment.

Due to the fact that this accident is still under the professional inquiry of local law enforcement officers in an attempt to establish cause and liability, no further information has been made available.

We would like to offer our deepest condolences to the family of the deceased victim at this time. Our thoughts are with the injured victim and his family in hopes of a full recovery.
