Jorn Winther has been identified by authorities as the victim of a head-on collision that occurred during the late morning in Palm Desert.  Mr. Winther, an 88 year-old Sherman Oaks resident, was in one of the vehicles and reportedly perished at the scene. Apparently, both vehicles were on Cook Street when one vehicle crossed over into the opposing lane, causing the deadly collision. Details on the incident remain unclear but authorities say they do not think the case is a DUI. The Palm Desert Police Department is investigating the matter.
