During their investigation, they learned that the driver of the Civic, the man who was killed, was driving at a “high rate of speed” eastbound on Orangethorpe Ave. when he swerved into oncoming traffic to avoid rear-ending another car that was driving slower. 
It was then that the Civic collided with the Pathfinder. 
The Honda driver was taken to a nearby hospital where he was later pronounced dead. His identity has not yet been released pending notification of next of kin. 
The 44-year-old driver of the Nissan and his 8-year-old female passenger both suffered minor injuries.
