Soquel Man Killed in Rollover Crash

Two men who were killed in a crash in southern San Mateo County near Pescadero on Monday afternoon have been identified as Jacob Breaux, 18, of Salinas, and Forrest Peck, 23, of Soquel, according to the county's coroner's office.

Breaux was driving a black Kia south on state Highway 1 with Peck and two other passengers, according to the California Highway Patrol.

At about 3:30 p.m., Breaux lost control of the vehicle just north of the Pigeon Point Lighthouse, CHP Officer Art Montiel said.

The vehicle apparently drifted onto the right shoulder and then swerved left into the northbound lanes, finally overturning and coming to rest on its roof east of Highway 1, Montiel said.

Breaux and Peck were pronounced dead at the scene by paramedics, according to the CHP.

The two other passengers, both men in their 20s from the Santa Cruz area, were taken to Stanford Hospital with minor to moderate injuries.

Highway 1 was closed in both directions for about 2 hours while the CHP conducted an investigation into the crash.

It has not been determined if drugs or alcohol were factors in the crash.

Anyone who witnessed the incident is asked to contact CHP Officer Musil at (650) 369-6261.
