Name of Mt. Aukum crash victim released

The name of a man who died in a head-on crash Wednesday night in rural El Dorado County has been released by sheriff's officials.

He was identified as 35-year-old Brian Joseph Hale. The California Highway Patrol said he was a Roseville resident.

The crash occurred about 6:30 p.m. on Mt. Aukum Road south of Paradise Ranch Road. Preliminary indications are that a car driving southbound on Mt. Aukum Road may have been traveling without headlights turned on when the driver crossed the center line, according to the California Highway Patrol.

The car hit a pickup traveling in the opposite direction head-on. The accident remains under investigation.

Hale, the driver of the car, died. A passenger in his vehicle was taken by helicopter to the hospital with severe injuries.

The driver of the pickup was taken to the hospital with non-life-threatening injuries.
