HOLLISTER, CA (October 30, 2019) – A man died following a head-on crash Wednesday morning in southern Santa Clara County.
The crash happened around 6:20 a.m. on Highway 152 east of Lovers Lane.
According to reports, a 2005 Toyota Tundra was heading westbound on the highway when an eastbound 2008 Toyota Sienna crossed the double yellow lines into the westbound lane. The two vehicles collided head-on.
