California — A deadly accident was reported on Sunday, December 15, after 23-year old Anthony Watson and his 18-year old female passenger were both killed in an accident with a box truck. The wreck happened at the intersection of Orangethorpe and Rose Drive, police said, at about 2:00 a.m. that morning.
Watson was driving a small car with his female passenger when he ran a red light at the intersection, going into the path of a northbound box truck. The two vehicles collided and Watson’s female passenger was declared dead immediately.
Firefighters apparently labored for roughly 30 minutes before freeing Watson from the wreckage, but he passed away shortly thereafter. More details are being released later, though it appears that alcohol has been ruled out as a factor in the initial investigation.
