LANCASTER – A motorist died in a rollover crash Wednesday morning after running a stop sign and getting hit by another vehicle, authorities said.
The fatal collision happened around 6:25 a.m. Wednesday, April 6, in the intersection of 110th Street West and Avenue I, according to a California Highway Patrol report.
The motorist was driving a 2003 Honda southbound on 110th Street, when he “failed to stop for the posted stop sign at the intersection of Avenue I” and was hit by a 2004 GMC that was traveling eastbound on Avenue I and “did not have a posted stop sign,” according to the CHP report.
“As a result of this crash, [the Honda] overturned and [the motorist], whom was not restrained, was partially ejected, resulting in fatal injuries,” the CHP report states. The motorist’s name has not yet been released pending next of kin notification, but he was a 39-year-old man from Lompoc, according to the CHP report.
No injuries were reported for the GMC’s driver, 42-year-old Juan Hernandez of Lancaster, according to the CHP report.
“The involvement of alcohol and/or drugs is still under investigation in this crash,” the CHP report states.
The crash is under investigation by the CHP’s Antelope Valley Area Office. Any witnesses are encouraged to contact Officer C. Borne, ID 18058, at 661-948-8541.

I love you Timmy. Man I can’t believe it. To Connie and Shannon sorry for your loss. I wish this never happened I haven’t had a chance to come see him yet and I told him I would.

There should be a four-way stop sign on all major open intersections.
I wouldn’t call 110th and Ave I a major intersection, though.
That would help but LASD patrol vehicles would still run into each other and have
Failure To Stop says
At least the GMC driver is OK.
Saw this accident in the morning maybe about 7:30 as the coroner was arriving. Looked pretty bad tire marks colored red…. really unfortunate
Are you talking bloody tire tracks?

Something doesn’t sound right…if you’re traveling at the same rate of speed towards the same point(intersection) you would think the GMC would have prevented the accident. Not his fault but defensive driving could have save this guys life.

Eastbound at that time of the morning it’s all a driver can do to stay on the road and not run stop signs themselves. Trying to pick what possible cross traffic might do out of the sun glare is a big ask.
One needs to treat every intersection as if no one is going to stop. Similar to riding a motorcycle like you are invisible
Two many people are clueless when it comes to driving defensively and avoiding accidents. These same people use crosswalks looking at their phones while wearing ear buds.
Nothing like putting your life in the hands of total strangers wtf

Speedy recovery for Juan
