DESERT HOT SPRINGS, California (August 12, 2013) – One person was killed and another critically injured Saturday morning in a rollover crash between two vehicles on 13th Avenue at Indian Canyon Drive, according to a report by the Riverside County Fire Department.

About 8:46 a.m., the driver of a sedan lost control of the vehicle, spun out and was broadsided by a small pickup truck, the Riverside County Sheriff Coroner reported.

Joshua Shane Kelly, 23, of Desert Hot Springs was identified by the coroner as the man who died at the scene of the crash. Kelly was ejected when his sedan was broadsided by the other driver.  The report indicates that Kelly may not have been wearing a seatbelt at the time of the collision.

“Sadly, there are no words that can comfort this man’s family and friends as they cope with such an incredible loss,” Attorney West Thomas said.  “The thoughts and prayers of our staff are with them as they try to piece together what happened and come to terms with his death.”

Indeed, there are many factors involved when someone is killed in a car crash.  Police will likely take measurements, photograph the accident scene, speak with the involved drivers, as well as witnesses and create a police report.
