NEWHALL – A Palmdale man died Monday morning after he lost control of his speeding vehicle on Bouquet Canyon Road, authorities said.
It happened around 6:30 a.m. Monday, Jan. 14, on Bouquet Canyon Road near mile post marker (MPM) 15.91, according to a California Highway Patrol report.
The driver was in a silver 2014 Toyota traveling southbound on Bouquet Canyon Road at a high rate of speed when he “failed to negotiate a curve in the roadway which caused the silver Toyota to leave the roadway and collide with a dirt embankment,” the CHP report states.
The driver was pronounced dead at the scene of the collision. His name has not yet been released pending next of kin notification, but he was a 22-year-old man from Palmdale, according to the California Highway Patrol.
“Excessive speed appears to be a contributing factor for the cause of this collision, however, a thorough investigation is on-going,” the CHP report states. It was raining at the time of the collision, according to the CHP.

Hello everyone, I met the young man over the thanksgiving holiday. Very nice kid who was expecting his first child to arrive that weekend. Its very unfortunate lost for both immediate family and his new family he was starting. For those of you who are angry and unsympathetic, I get it. Innocent lives could have been taken.
Let’s be real with each other, we all know someone who needs some guidance and a kick in ass. Let’s not give up on anyone, this person could have made big impact on all our lives but now we won’t know. My prayers are with the family and his little guy who won’t get to know his father.
I used to live in a cabin behind the Big Oaks Lodge on Bouquet Canyon Rd. We used to watch drivers speed past us at all hours. It doesn’t matter how many people die on that road. Drivers never think they will be the next statistic.

I crashed on Bouquet Canyon Road when I was a youngster.
Great Scott says
Any chance of you making another run at it? Second time may be the charm.
Tim Scott says
LOL…thanks for the demonstration. Notice how the gang that is always up in arms about how I “wish death” on people has nothing to say here? Point of fact it wouldn’t surprise me if you yourself are one of that hypocritical crew.
It wouldn’t be the same without his stroppy attitude. Leaving out the death threats though. Stay safe Tim.

See, that’s why I’d buy the coffee to meet you Alexis. It isn’t very often that I learn a new word any more.
Stroppy. I’ll be using that one!
All of us at one time or another have made unwise decisions. May God Bless this family during this horrific and tragic loss.
Sounds like my everyday commute when dumb drivers pass super fast not knowing if a car is coming ahead! And curves are at 25-30 mph I have dealt with many idiot drivers that do this, this time it was the person doing the dumb act and didn’t claim the life of an innocent commuter that just want to get to work to feed the family ,Thank god for that !
May he Rest In Peace … but I’m sure he was old enough knowing that driving that way had consequences. And I’m sorry if my comment disturbs anybody but it is the truth !
That seems to be pretty common in that area.
When will these stupid young people learn to drive that canyon????
This was a totally avoidable death!
Sorry if I sound mean but I’m tired of hearing young (really any aged) people getting killed to get somewhere a little faster.
If you need to speed to get to where you are going, LEAVE EARLIER and drive slower….. ♀️♀️♀️
Tori I think you need to be quite, calling “young people” stupid when everyday it’s someone’s day, not only young people but everyone in general
No need to call anyone stupid here, so shut your mouth if you have nothing nice to say
Someone literally just died & that’s your comment on the accident? Lol
yeah dont be a [removed]. someone [removed] died. someones kid. someones other half. a new father. a friend to people. people do [removed] they shouldnt. but should him speeding outweigh all the good this man may have done? no need to say he shouldnt have been speeding. no [removed]?? but sometimes people speed. dont act like you never have. your perspective changes real quick once it’s someone you know.
