The accident happened on Monday afternoon on Highway 177 near Desert Center. Matt Hughes, the head coach of the varsity girls soccer team at Ayala High School, was heading back from a Memorial Day trip to Arizona with three passengers in his car. Matt’s 2012 Toyota Corolla abruptly veered into the opposing lane and crashed head on into a 1999 Freightliner semi-truck for an unknown reason.
Matt Hughes was rushed to a local hospital, where he tragically succumbed to his injuries and died. Also killed in the collision was Gabby Constante, the assistant coach for the team, who was also Matt Hughes girlfriend. Two other women inside the car were also killed in the collision.
