Second Coto de Caza Traffic Fatality In Three Months

Coto de Caza recorded its first traffic accident fatality in ten years in December of 2005. In less than three months, the second fatality has occurred.

Sunday 3-12-2006, at 1.30 pm, 75 year-old Morteza Manian was riding his bicycle southbound on Lexington Way approaching the intersection of North Hampton Place, while the 16 year old driver of a Nissan Frontier westbound on North Hampton Place approached the same intersection of Lexington Way. As the driver slowed down to stop, the right front corner of the Nissan struck the left side of Mr. Manian’s and the bicycle.

Mr. Manian was transported to Mission Regional Hospital, and succumbed to his injuries in the late hours of 3/12/2006.
