CHP officials reported a 22-year-old Seaside man driving a grey Nissan sedan and a 36-year-old Justin Borges of Stockton driving a tan Chevrolet Tahoe were involved. The Nissan was southbound when its driver reportedly veered across the double yellow lines into the path of the Tahoe. One of the vehicles caught on fire. Both vehicles also overturned onto their sides.

Paramedics responded and confirmed the younger man dead following the collision. Authorities say he was not wearing a seatbelt. His passenger was critically injured.
