Emergency officials deal with a two-vehicle crash on Highway 1 at Old Chittenden Road Wednesday afternoon that killed two people.

California Highway Patrol officer Stephen Armfield said the male driver of a 2008 Honda Ridgeline pickup was traveling east on Hwy 129 with two other men and a woman aboard. At 3:45pm, for unknown reasons, the Honda drifted over the double-yellow lines and smashed head-on into a 2016 GMC Sierra pickup towing a Genesis 30-foot travel camper westbound. The driver of the Honda, Alex Mascarenoluque, 32, of Los Banos, died at an out of county hospital, said CHP officer Alyssa Gutierrez. His male passenger (name not released) died at the scene. The 37-year-old Visalia man who was driving the GMC with a 37-year-old woman and three kids aboard all suffered minor injuries. The cause of the collision is still under investigation. Alcohol does not appear to be a factor in this collision, Gutierrez said.
