NEWHALL (CNS) — Authorities have identified one of two men killed in a crash in Newhall that left a third man hospitalized.
The men were riding in a car that crashed into a power pole in the 23200 block of Sierra Highway about 1 a.m. on Tuesday, April 26, said Sgt. David Shoemaker of the sheriff’s Santa Clarita Station.
“For some reason the car veered off the road and slammed into an Edison pole,” Shoemaker said.
Two men died at the scene, including Noah Murphy, 24, whose home town was unclear, said coroner’s Assistant Chief Ed Winter. The name of the other fatally injured man was withheld pending notification of his relatives.
The survivor was taken to a hospital in critical condition, Shoemaker said.
