A Palmdale man died after a driver traveling the wrong way on the Highway 14 caused a three-vehicle crash at 2:59 a.m. Sunday near Santiago Road in Acton, a CHP official said.

California Highway Patrol dispatched a report of the wrong-way driver Mynor Solares, 30 of Palmdale, driving his 2001 Ford Explorer northbound in the southbound lane, CHP Sergeant Kenton Miller said Monday.

Officers arrested Solares and charged him with one count of felony vehicular manslaughter and one felony count of driving the wrong way on a freeway and causing injury and death, Miller said.

Solares allegedly sideswiped a 1992 Ford Mustang before colliding head-on with Andres Lazo, 60 from Palmdale, in a Nissan Murano, both traveling southbound on SR-14. Deputies allege Solares was under the influence of alcohol at the time of the incident, Miller said.

"The driver of the 2006 Murano, Andres Lazo, 60 of Palmdale, was killed in the accident as a result of the head-on collision," he said.

Rescuers transported Solares, Lazo and the Mustang driver to Antelope Valley Hospital, where Lazo was pronounced dead and the others received treatment for their injuries, Miller said.

Lancaster Station CHP Officer Brian Muravez, served as the incident investigating officer.
