John Kudla Injured in Fatal Head-On Crash on Nacimiento Lake Drive in Paso Robles
PASO ROBLES, CA (September 2, 2019) – Three people were killed in a head-on crash Monday afternoon in northern San Luis Obispo County.
The crash happened around 2:00 p.m. near the intersection of Nacimiento Lake Drive and San Marcos Road.
According to the CHP, a 2015 Dodge Dart was traveling eastbound. At the same time, a 2001 Ford F-150, driven by 58-year-old John Kudla, was heading westbound.
As the vehicles approached each other, the Dodge crossed the double yellow lines to pass another eastbound vehicle.
The Dodge and the Ford collided head-on in the westbound lane and came to rest on the north shoulder, the CHP said.
As a result, both the driver and passenger in the Dodge died at the scene. CHP officials say the driver of the Dodge was possibly under the influence of alcohol at the time of the crash.
Meanwhile, paramedics transported the right-front passenger of the Ford to a trauma center, where she also succumbed to her injuries.
Kudla sustained lacerations and cuts and transported himself to the hospital for treatment, the CHP said.
CHP officials are still investigating the cause of this crash.
