1 killed, 3 injured in head-on vehicle crash on Highway 1

One person died and three others were injured in a vehicle crash on Highway 1 in Cambria on Sunday afternoon, according to the California Highway Patrol.

A 20-year-old Rocklin resident was driving a 2015 Honda Civic northbound down Highway 1 north of Burton Drive at about 3:20 p.m. when she swerved for unknown reasons into the southbound lane, the CHP said in a news release.

She then crashed the Honda head-on into a 2024 Toyota Camry driving in the southbound lane.

The Rocklin resident died of her injuries, the CHP said. Her passenger, 19-year-old Flagstaff resident Isabel Farrar, suffered major injuries and was transported to the Adventist Health Sierra Vista in San Luis Obispo for treatment.

“Distraction and impairment are not suspected to be a factor in this crash,” the release said.

The name of the driver will not be released until her next of kin is notified, the CHP said.

Bakersfield resident Terry Knight, 56, was driving the Toyota at the time of the crash. He suffered major injuries and was sent to the Sierra Vista.

Knight’s passenger, 59-year-old Bakersfield resident Kim Fanaras, sustained moderate injuries and was also transported to Sierra Vista.
