UPDATE (5:09 p.m.) - The California Highway Patrol says a third person has died following a head-on crash involving a car and truck on Nacimiento Lake Drive east of San Marcos Road Monday afternoon that may be alcohol-related.

As of 5:09 p.m., CHP says the passenger in the truck was given CPR on scene and taken to a trauma center but died from her injuries. The driver of that vehicle, a 58-year-old man from Paso Robles, reportedly sustained minor injuries.

A man and woman in the other vehicle, a 2015 black Dodge Dart, died at the scene. The man was said to not be wearing a seatbelt, according to CHP.
