A Knights Landing man was killed Saturday in a head-on collision when a car drifted into his lane on Old River Road east of Woodland.

Yolo County coroner’s officials identified him as 21-year-old Juan Bravo.

The California Highway Patrol said that Tyler McLean, 21, of Woodland was driving south on Old River Road south of County Road 124 about 12:30 p.m. Saturday. Bravo’s car was northbound.

As the cars approached each other, McLean’s car drifted into the northbound lane and collided with Bravo’s car.

McLean and Bravo were removed from their cars by a passing motorist because McLean’s car caught fire. Bravo died from the collision, and McLean was taken by air ambulance to a hospital with major injuries.
