Palmdale, CA – 1 Killed & 2 Injured in Head-on Collision Along 170th St

Palmdale, CA (February 6, 2020) – A man who has now been identified as 39-year-old Oscar Portillo, of Palmdale, was sadly killed in a car crash that took place on 170th Street last Saturday night, February 1st. The fatal collision that also left two others injured happened at around 8:20 p.m. in Palmdale.

Authorities stated that a 2003 Dodge Ram 1500 was traveling north near Avenue R when it collided head-on with a 2007 Nissan Frontier being operated by Portillo. Emergency responders immediately arrived at the scene but were unable to save Portillo who also had a 29-year-old female passenger in the vehicle.

Both the passenger and the driver of the Dodge, identified only as a 60-year-old man from Llano, were transported to Antelope Valley Hospital to be treated for major injuries. The events that led to this collision remain under investigation.

We would like to offer our deepest condolences to the family of Oscar Portillo at this time. Our thoughts are with both injured victims and their families in hopes of their full recovery.

Fatal Car Accidents in California

Tragically, motor vehicle accidents in California constantly prove to be fatal or at least majorly injurious. Collisions that occur head-on are frequently severe, particularly when the crash happens at a high rate of speed. It is unfortunate that the life-ending injuries of around 48 people per 100,000 are reported as the direct outcomes of injuries sustained during various collisions, according to studies.
