SR 330 Passing

Lane Accident



 At about 10:30 A.M Thursday February 4th, Ying He from Monterey Park, California, was driving her Toyota Camry southbound on State Route 330 and 4.70 miles south of Live Oak Drive, near Running Springs. It was determined that He’s Toyota was traveling at an unsafe speed for the sharp right curve approaching.   

At approximately the same time a second vehicle, a GMC Pick-up driven by Miguel Angel Navarro, of Santa Ana, California, was north-bound on SR-330 entering a left curve at a stated speed of 30 mph.

Due to He’s Toyota traveling at an unsafe speed through the right curve, she was unable to maintain the southbound lane. The Toyota slid across the double yellow center line directly into the path of the GMC Pick-up.  The front of Toyota struck the left side of the Pick-up, in the northbound lane. The impact spun the GMC Pick-up into a counter-clockwise direction, with the second vehicle finally resting on the east dirt shoulder on its wheels, facing in a southerly direction. The Toyota came to rest on its wheels against the west guardrail, south of the Pick-up facing in a westerly direction. 

Drive Navarro sustained minor injuries. Both the Toyota and the GMC Pick-up both received major damage. The California Highway Patrol’s Summary was based on statements and physical evidence.​
