Palmdale, CA (July 18, 2020) – On Friday night, July 17th, a 26-year-old man, identified as Pablo Barrios, of Los Angeles, was killed in a head-on crash that left three others seriously injured in Palmdale. The fatal accident happened along 90th Street East, a little south of Avenue Q.

Officers with the California Highway Patrol say that Jamie Gonzalez, 20, of Lancaster, was traveling south when he veered into the northbound lane at around 9:25 p.m. Gonzalez’s vehicle collided head-on with a vehicle being operated by Barrios and occupied by two passengers.

Emergency medical crews arrived at the scene alongside police and firefighters. Barrios was pronounced deceased on location. Gonzalez and the two passengers in the other vehicle, identified as 26-year-old Lourdes Santos and a four-year-old girl were all hospitalized with serious injuries.
