Tarter was driving east near Marina Driver in a 2018 white Toyota Tundra pick-up truck when the collision occurred at about 2:30 p.m.

According to witnesses interviewed by the California Highway Patrol, westbound Ryan Trevino, 35, crossed a solid double yellow line in a 2016 blue Chevrolet Silverado pick-up and smashed into Tarter’s vehicle. Witnesses also described Trevino as driving recklessly.
