RAMONA – A 21-year-old Ramona driver and his 13-year-old passenger were killed in a collision with another vehicle, according to the California Highway Patrol.

About 4:45 p.m. Thursday, a 21-year-old man was driving a 2007 Toyota Scion TC westbound on San Vicente Road, east of Wildcat Canyon Road, CHP Officer Jared Grieshaber said. A boy was seated in the right front passenger seat.

A 61-year-old woman from Ramona was driving a 2018 Dodge Durango eastbound on San Vicente Road, approaching the Toyota, Grieshaber said.
