Officers responded to the deadly collision around 9:45 p.m. along southbound Highway 33, just south of Christian Avenue. Based on the initial investigation, a northbound 2020 Honda went over the southbound lanes of Highway 33 to pass another vehicle.

The Merced County Sheriff’s coroner’s office identified the deceased driver as 75-year-old Rosie Lee Mayes and 18-year-old David Isaac Robbins. Both victims were determined to be Dos Palos residents.
