Fatal Traffic Collision Near Lompoc

I read somewhere else that one vehicle was mistaken as a Miata but was really a Honda 2000 the first report over the scanner stated that the yellow Miata;s occupants were unresponsive but from reading this other report the deceased person was in the other vehicle that was driven by a 27 year old Santa Barbara man..The Miata/Honda driven by a 55 year old male, for some unknown reason crossed the double yellows and hit the red Nissan head on the passenger a 24 year old female in the Nissan was killed...I too am very sorry.
