As a result of the collision, Lanza-Buezo sustained fatal injuries. Injured in the crash were Lanza-Buezo's passenger, 47-year-old Wilmer Menzia, and the driver of the Chevy, 83-year-old James Nobles. Right now, factors leading up to the crash remain unclear.

While this road isn't the typical one involved in "wrong way" accidents, considering it doesn't have any physical barrier, it does appear to have a center turn lane. That may have helped authorities distinguish between a vehicle traveling along the wrong side of the road rather than, for example, crossing over due to something like fatigue, a medical emergency, or some kind of mechanical issue.

But even if the vehicle was persistently on the wrong side of the road, it's important folks don't jump to conclusions. Sometimes, there are unusual factors to consider. I know if I lost a loved one in a crash like this, I'd want to know I was getting the full story and not someone's gut feeling that isn't based on any kind of evidence. I'd want the exact same thing if I was one of the people that survived the crash, as well. That's why it's important to make sure authorities understand this and give the accident the attention it deserves on behalf of all of the people involved, especially if they're not around to tell their side of the story.
