COALINGA, Calif. (KSEE/KGPE) – A driver is dead after a fatal accident in east Coalinga on Friday evening, according to CHP officials.

Upon investigation, CHP officials say a man was driving a 2005 Honda Accord eastbound on Jaye Avenue east of Enterprise Parkway at an unknown speed when the crash occurred.

According to officials, the driver of the Accord made an “unsafe turning movement” onto the right dirt shoulder of Jayne Avenue. Authorities say “after careening onto the dirt shoulder, the male driver turned the Honda to the left and lost control of the Honda.”

CHP officers say the vehicle then traveled across the eastbound and westbound lane of Janye Avenue into the direct path of an oncoming 2020 Nissan Van traveling westbound on the road.
