One Person Dead In Roll Over Accident

One person was killed in an accident between Winterhaven and the Interstate-Eight rest stop. The California Highway Patrol says 74 year old Alberto Montereo Martinez of Somerton was traveling eastbound on Interstate 8 Sunday morning, when his vehicle traveled into the median. He apparently tried to come back onto the freeway and overcorrected the vehicle, causing him to lose control of the 2001 GMC. Martinez’s vehicle crossed the other lanes of traffic and onto the south dirt shoulder, eventually colliding with a road sign, causing the vehicle to flip over. Police say seatbelts were in use at the time of the accident.
