1 dead in multi-vehicle crash at California off-road area
SAN LUIS OBISPO, Calif. (AP) — Authorities say a woman was killed in a five-vehicle crash at the Oceano Dunes State Vehicular Recreation Area on California’s central coast.
The San Luis Obispo Tribune reports the crash happened Friday as a group of off-road vehicles were following each other at speeds up to 60 mph (97 kph).
The woman was a passenger in the lead vehicle, which tumbled end-over-end after flying off a dune and losing control. She later died at a hospital. The newspaper says the driver and a juvenile in the same vehicle were hospitalized in unknown condition.
Occupants of three other vehicles had minor injuries.
State parks officials are investigating the crash.
