“For reasons unknown, he allowed his car to drift over the double yellow line,” Cassidy said.
Hernandez’s vehicle collided head-on with a Toyota Tundra pickup truck driven in the southbound lanes, Cassidy said.

The collision caused the Tundra to spin out, striking a third vehicle, The combination of collisions overturned the truck.

Debris from the crash struck and damaged a fourth vehicle, Cassidy said.

Hernandez was taken from the scene by helicopter to Antelope Valley Hospital in Lancaster, where he later died of his injuries, Cassidy said.
