One person is dead after a car crash in San Luis Obispo on Monday.

Cal Fire tweeted it was assisting California Highway Patrol with a fatal collision near Highway 1 and Stenner Creek Road on Monday afternoon.

According to police scanner traffic, a vehicle drove into a tree soon after 3 p.m. in that area.

KSBY reported that the driver of the vehicle — “a male in his late teens” — was killed after he veered off the road heading southbound, and his car hit a large eucalyptus tree. California Highway Patrol officers told KSBY the man had been identified, but his name wasn’t yet being released.

Cal Fire urged people to be aware of emergency vehicles in that area.
