CALEXICO — A collision between three vehicles on Highway 111 north of here left one man dead and resulted in the closure of the north lanes of the highway for more than two hours.
Killed was Bernardino Lopez Lopez, 76, of Calexico.
According to the Calexico Police Department, the lead agency in the investigation, Lopez was traveling north on the highway near Jasper Road in his sport-utility vehicle about 1:50 p.m.
As he neared the Jasper intersection, Jamie Sinclair, 32, of El Centro attempted to make a left turn from the highway onto Jasper. As she did her car turned into the path of Lopez's vehicle.
The vehicles collided, causing Sinclair's car to spin out of control into the path of another sport-utility vehicle stopped at Jasper, waiting to make a right onto the highway. That SUV was driven by Genaro Dominguez, 45, of Calexico.
