Jose Soto Gonzales has been identified by authorities as the deceased in a head-on two-vehicle accident that occurred in Nipomo on July 8. Mr. Gonzales, a 57-year-old local resident, was driving a Chevrolet S-10 pickup on Pomeroy Road shortly before 4:00 p.m when a Honda HR-V reportedly went over the double yellow lines and crossed into the truck’s lane. Mr. Gonzales was killed and the driver of the Honda, 28-year-old Aptos resident  Aleksandr Moiseyev, was significantly injured and was arrested on vehicular manslaughter and DUI.
