LANCASTER, Calif. – Authorities Saturday identified a man who was killed in a two-vehicle crash in an unincorporated area near Lancaster.
Frank Garcia, 31, was the victim, according to the Los Angeles County Coroner’s office.
He was driving westbound on Avenue J about 7:05 a.m. Friday with two passengers and was approaching 140th Street East when the driver of a Nissan that was stopped at a two-way stop sign “failed to yield the right-of-way and entered the intersection,” according to the California Highway Patrol.
The left front of the Nissan struck Garcia’s car and caused it to overturn multiple times before coming to a rest on the eastbound shoulder of Avenue J.
Garcia was pronounced dead at the scene by paramedics.
One of the Garcia’s passengers sustained major injuries and was taken to a hospital for treatment, while the second passenger was uninjured. The woman driving the Nissan also sustained minor injuries.
Garcia’s city of residence was not known.
