September 24, 2011- A 22-year-old man and his 21-year-old female passenger died early Saturday morning, when they crashed head-on with another vehicle on Interstate 5, south of the Kern County, Kings County border.
The man, who was from Oceanside, was driving a 2000 Ford Explorer northbound on I-5, just after midnight, when he drove through the center median and into the southbound lanes of I-5.

Romero was taken to Kern Medical Center, in Bakersfield, by ambulance to be treated for moderate injuries.

It is reported that all were wearing seat belts. The crash is under investigation.
