LOS BANOS, CA (August 23, 2021)Oscar Robles, Felipe Martinez and 1 woman were involved in a deadly two-vehicle collision on Highway 152 Saturday morning.

The accident occurred around 7:10 a.m. and involved two vehicles near Highway 152 and Volta Road.

According to reports, Robles was driving southbound in a Ford F-350 towing a trailer when he attempted to cross, but failed to notice a 2013 Hyundai Elantra traveling in the No. 2 eastbound lanes of the highway.
