The California Highway Patrol has identified the Paso Robles man killed in a head-on collision near Coalinga on Friday night.
Officials confirmed Tuesday that Antonio Trinidad, 42, was the sole occupant of the 1994 Mazda as he drove north on Highway 33 and drifted off the roadway. According to the CHP, Trinidad overcorrected and ended up in the southbound lane, where he collided with a 2007 Toyota carrying five passengers, including three children, also from Paso Robles.
The occupants of the Toyota were treated at a local hospital for minor to moderate injuries.
CHP Officer Steven Schuh from the Coalinga office said Tuesday that Trinidad was not licensed to drive. Drugs or alcohol intoxication is not suspected in the crash.
