A 23-year-old Ceres who was reportedly driving at a high rate of speed was killed Thursday evening in a head-on crash on Orange Blossom Road west of Wamble Road.

Killed instantly in the 5:30 p.m. crash east of Oakdale was Kevin Adams.

The California Highway Patrol said Adams was speeding eastbound in a Ford Mustang when he came upon a vehicle moving in the same direction but slowing to make a right turn. Adams suddenly swerved into the oncoming lane to avoid rear-ending the car and plowed head-on into an oncoming Jeep.

The driver of the Jeep sustained major injuries and was rushed to Memorial Medical Center in Modesto while her four-year-old male passenger sustained minor injuries.
