Two Fatalities Occur in Near Head-on Collision on SR-132

Wednesday October 21, 2020

On October 20th, 2020, at around 1730 hours, a 1997 Nissan pathfinder traveling east on SR-132 near mile post 7 crossed the center line and struck a westbound 2014 Ford F150 nearly head on. The black pathfinder rotated once and stopped blocking both travel lanes. The F150 spun a half turn and went off the north side of the road and came to a rest by the fence. Neither of the drivers were wearing a seat belt. The solo male drivers were the only occupants of each vehicle. Impairment is suspected as a contributing factor after Troopers discovered meth, marijuana, and prescription drugs in the Pathfinder.

The deceased driver of the Nissan Pathfinder is James D Manis, age 37, of Delta.

The deceased driver of the F150 is Joshua Spencer, age 31, of Delta.
