Upon arrival, officers learned the male driver of a blue Acura sedan was traveling N/B on Auto Center Drive, at a high rate of speed, approaching the intersection of West 10TH Street. The Acura sedan entered the intersection as a silver Lexus SUV was traveling W/B through the intersection (on West 10TH Street), resulting in a “T-Bone” collision.
