– The Paso Robles Police Department responded to a fatal traffic collision involving a vehicle rollover Saturday night.

The incident occurred Saturday, March 23, around 9:33 p.m. local time when PRPD dispatch received a report of a single vehicle rollover down an embankment near Buena Vista Drive and Highway 46 East. Upon arrival, officers discovered a white Dodge Ram pickup with three occupants.

One of the occupants was ejected from the vehicle and pronounced dead at the scene. The other two occupants sustained serious injuries and were transported to a nearby hospital; their injuries are reported as serious but not life-threatening.
