Man killed in Fallbrook head-on crash: Ryan Callahan pronounced dead on scene

Crash occurred at Reche Road at Gird

FALLBROOK, Calif. - Authorities Monday released the name of a 37-year-old man who died after allegedly causing a head-on collision in Fallbrook that also sent two men to the hospital with moderate injuries.

Ryan Daniel Callahan of Fallbrook died at the scene of the crash, which occurred on Reche Road just east of Gird Road around 9:15 p.m. Sunday, according to California Highway Patrol and the San Diego County Medical
Examiner's Office.

Callahan was driving eastbound on Reche Road in a 1991 Toyota Corolla when, for unknown reasons, he veered into opposing lanes and collided with a westbound 2003 BMW 540i driven by a 32-year-old man, CHP Officer Jim Bettencourt said in a statement.

The BMW driver and a male passenger in his vehicle were taken by ambulance to Palomar Medical Center, Bettencourt said, describing their injuries as moderate.

"At this time, it is unknown if alcohol or drugs played a factor in this collision," he said early this morning.
