Two students heading home from Coast Union High School were involved in a rear-end collision Monday afternoon just west of campus, with one suffering minor injuries.
A two-door red Lexus sedan hit Ramirez’s Colorado LT pickup from the rear, Archibald said. Marshall Hollingsead, 56, was driving his son, 17-year-old junior Eric Hollingsead, in the Lexus, said Susan Hollingsead, Marshall Hollingsead’s wife.
“I just slowed down a little bit and just got hit,” Ramirez said.

“He walked by himself; he’s swollen,” said Coast Union Principal Scott Ferguson, who said Eric Hollingsead had a shiner. “He’s in the car sitting there with ice packs, and they’re going to take him in” to get medical attention.
Ramirez, who was uninjured, drove the pickup away from the scene. The Lexus’ right front end was severely damaged, and the vehicle was towed by Cambria Towing.
