The crash happened at around 1:01 p.m. Tuesday, June 25, on Highway 1, just south of Chaney Avenue.
As per the CHP officials, a gray Honda Fit driven by 81-year-old Michael Engelberg of West Hollywood was heading northbound on Highway 1 at about 65 miles per hour when the driver thought he saw the Cayucos off-ramp and steered toward the intersection of Chaney Avenue and Ocean Boulevard.

One of the employees saw the car and was able to get out of the way in time. Holt and the other employee were not able to avoid the crash and were hit.
