A 27-year-old Hanford man died and another was airlifted after a collision early Saturday on eastbound Highway 198 at 14th Avenue in Armona, the California Highway Patrol said.
The CHP on Monday released new details about the crash:
The Hanford man, identified as Brandon Moon, was driving a 2007 Mercedes eastbound east of 14th Avenue when he came up on a 1999 Honda whose driver has not yet been identified. (NOTE: The original version of this story incorrectly identified the Mercedes driver as Brandon Moore.)

Moon’s Mercedes crashed into the Honda, sending it spinning. The Mercedes careened off the highway and overturned; Moon, who wasn’t wearing a seat belt, was ejected and died at the scene. The Honda driver was airlifted to a hospital with major injuries.
The roadway was closed for about four hours while CHP investigated.
No other information was made available.
