Once through the intersection of Ramona Avenue, the Tahoe crossed the double yellow line and continued west onto a raised concrete center median. The Tahoe continued west on the median for about 230 feet with no physical evidence of breaking. The front of the Tahoe collided into a traffic signal pole at the intersection of SR 71 northbound on-ramp. The impact resulted in the death of the front passenger, and non-life threatening injuries to the rear passenger and Contreras who were transported to local hospitals.
