22-88300 Traffic Fatality
Posted on Aug 10, 2022
On Tuesday, August 9, 2022, at about 11:19 a.m., a male was driving a homemade “go-cart” westbound on Baseline Street at a high rate of speed. For unknown reasons, the “go-cart” was being driven on a city street, even though it was not street legal. The driver attempted to turn northbound onto Cedar Street, and during the turn the “go-cart” left the roadway and collided with a stop sign at the corner of Baseline Street and Cedar Street. No other persons were injured, and no other vehicles were involved. Medical personnel responded within minutes, and the driver was transported by ambulance to Loma Linda University Medical Center.

The driver sustained critical injuries and succumbed to his injuries at the hospital.

Speed and the use of an unsafe, illegal vehicle on the roadway appear to be factors in this collision. It is unknown if the driver was under the influence of drugs or alcohol at the time of the collision.

The collision is still under investigation, and anyone with additional information is asked to contact Detective Dan Acosta or Sergeant Jeff Harvey at (909) 384-5792.
