A head-on collision left one woman dead on Pony Express Trail Thursday night.
The collision happened at 10:14 p.m., just east of Camino, CHP Officer Dan Stark said.
Joshuah McCavitt, 31, of Lotus, had been driving his 1999 Chevy Silverado westbound on Pony Express Trail when he “failed to navigate a curve,” Stark said. “He crossed the yellow line into the path of” Denise Caldwell, 50, of Camino, driving a 2012 Suburu Legacy eastbound on Pony Express.
The head-on collision overturned both cars, with both coming to a rest on their roofs. Caldwell, Stark said, sustained “fatal injuries at the scene.”
Stark said that McCavitt was subsequently arrested on charges of driving under the influence and vehicular manslaughter.
