(Fatal injury victim identified)….Arturo Gonzalez was driving a GMC truck Monday afternoon.
The California Highway Patrol says the truck was broadsided by a farm tractor at the intersection of Norrish and Holt Roads near Holtville. The CHP says the collision pushed the truck into the Rosita Canal. The vehicle was completely submerged. Attempts to rescue the 41 year old driver were in vain. The County Coroner’s Office said an autopsy was pending to determine a cause of death. The California Highway Patrol says they are continuing to investigate the collision. They say the Calipatria resident and the 27 year old driving the tractor were both wearing their seatbelts. They do not believe alcohol was a factor in the collision.
