“(Southern California) Edison is on the scene,” said Marrujo.

Deputies from the SCV Sheriff’s Station also responded to the scene, Hahnlein confirmed, and treated the site of the crash as if it were a crime scene.

This, he said, is standard procedure for all accidents that involve a fatality.

At this time, alcohol is not suspected to be a factor in the crash. As per protocol when there is a fatality, all parties involved were tested on the scene, Hahnlein said.
