Christian Diaz and Gonzalo Rodriguez Killed, 3 Others Hurt Following Two-Vehicle Collision on Highway 78 Near West Haverford Road

 
RAMONA, CA (December 26, 2018) – An uncle and his 5-year-old nephew perished Monday following a two-vehicle crash on Highway 78 near West Haverford Road.
 
The fatal crash caused a closure on Highway 78 for nearly four hours.
 
According to authorities, Gonzalo Rodriguez was the 44-year-old driver operating a white Toyota Camry with three occupants inside the vehicle. Under unknown circumstances, Rodriguez reportedly lost control and veered over the double yellow lines, into the eastbound lanes, and collided with a full size 2014 RAM pickup truck.
 
Paramedics arrived on scene and extricated Rodriguez before airlifting him to Palomar Medical Center, where he died shortly after. Christian Diaz was Rodriguez’s 5-year-old nephew seated in the rear passenger seat; he also died in the crash.
 
Also, in the Camry, were a six-year-old boy and a female passenger who was believed to be the mother of the two boys. News reports say that both children were not properly restrained.
 
The 77-year-old Oregon man operating the RAM pickup sustained serious but non-life-threatening injuries.
 
A follow-up investigation of this crash is underway.
