Police said that Trinh was driving his Mitsubishi Eclipse east on Fillmore, west of 28th Avenue, at 10:42 p.m., when he entered a curve at a high rate of speed and lost control. The car rotated and entered the westbound lane, going into the path of Boillat’s Chrysler 300, Garvelink said. The cars collided and went off the north side of the road.

Both men were taken to Spectrum Hospital by ambulance, Garvelink said, and Boillat suffered “significant orthopedic injuries.” Both men were wearing seatbelts.
