Man killed in Avila Beach crash


A 44-year-old man died Tuesday morning after driving off Highway 101 in Avila Beach.

Shortly after 9:30 a.m., Arturo Estrada-Aguilera was driving a grey Jeep Cherokee northbound near the Avila Beach Drive offramp. For unknown reasons, he abruptly crossed two lanes of traffic and drove off the east side of the highway, down a steep embankment, across the offramp and head-on into a large oak tree.

Estrada-Aguilera, the lone occupant of the vehicle, was not wearing a seatbelt.

Medical personnel pronounced him dead at the scene.

    Not wearing a seat belt? Who doesn’t wear a seatbelt these days? Very sad that a life is lost over not wearing a damn seatbelt.
