From the Bishop Office of the CHP. “On 12/20/19 at approximately 5:27 PM, a 29 year old male from Albuquerque, NM, was driving a 2018 Nissan Sentra eastbound on SR-190 near Slab City and was directly behind another vehicle that was also traveling eastbound on SR-190 at approximately 50 MPH. At the same time, a 53 year old male from Chandler, AZ, was driving a 2018 Honda Accord westbound on SR-190, approaching the Nissan from the opposite direction.
The driver of the Nissan went into the westbound lane and attempted to pass the vehicle ahead without sufficient clearance. The Nissan and Honda collided head-on, causing major damage to both vehicles. One passenger of the Honda sustained multiple tramatic injuries and succumbed to her injuries at the scene. The remaining seven victims we’re immediately transported to medical care facilies.”
