Manuel Garcia Baltazar, 26, was killed in a rollover car accident on the 10 Freeway in Riverside County, California. According to a news report in The Desert Sun, officials are puzzled as to what caused this fatal car accident and why Baltazar lost control of his pickup truck. Baltazar was ejected from the truck and died at the scene of the early morning car crash, which occurred on July 29, 2009. California Highway Patrol investigators say he was not wearing his seatbelt.
Baltazar was reportedly traveling eastbound on the freeway in the fast lane when his 2003 Chevrolet truck went off the roadway on the left. He then overcorrected and skidded into the dirt where the truck rolled once. Officials don’t know how fast he was going, but according to witness reports, Baltazar was not speeding. No other cars or vehicles were involved in this car crash and CHP officials also say that alcohol or drugs were not a contributing factor.
I offer my deepest sympathies to the family and friends of Manuel Garcia Baltazar for their tragic and untimely loss. My heart goes out to everyone who knew and loved Baltazar. Please keep them in your prayers.
