ATV Crash in Oceano Kills Driver and Injures Passenger
OCEANO, CA (May 26, 2019) – A 24-year-old man was killed following an ATV crash Sunday afternoon at Oceano Dunes.
The crash happened around 4:00 p.m. Park Rangers responded to the site known as Post 5 ½ Primaries, which is described as a relatively flat area of the park.
The driver, identified by park officials as Kristopher Mancebo of Tulare, suffered a head trauma and was pronounced dead at the scene.
His passenger was treated for complaints of pain to his arm and shoulder, park officials said.
Witnesses told authorities a sand car was traveling southbound in the area at about 40 to 50 mph. The front end of the vehicle dropped, causing it to flip over several times.
Mancebo was ejected from the vehicle. Neither of the occupants were wearing helmets.
The San Luis Obispo Sheriff’s Office is working on the investigation.
We express our deepest condolences to the family and friends of Kristopher Mancebo during this time of grief.
