A man who died in a head-on crash in Kern County has been identified as Alexei Scissons, 20, of Hanford, the Kern County Coroner’s Office said Wednesday.
Scissons was at the wheel of a 2001 Chevrolet when it hit another vehicle Sunday in Lost Hills in Kern County, the California Highway Patrol said.
About 6 a.m. Sunday, Scissons was driving east at high speed on Highway 46 west of Warren Street, the CHP said. He was not wearing a seatbelt and passengers Andrew Timm, 19, and Adrian Timm, 16, both of Hanford, were also not wearing seatbelts.
For unknown reasons, Scissons turned and crossed into the westbound lane, hitting a 2014 Chevrolet pickup driven by Jose Vasquez, 62, of Holtville.
Never miss a local story.
Scissons died at the scene and the passengers were taken to Kern Medical Center. Vasquez said he would seek his own aid.
