YUMA, Ariz. (KYMA, KECY) - The Yuma County Sheriff's Office (YCSO) responded to a two-vehicle collision in the area near S. Avenue B and 28th Street.
Through a press release, the incident occurred on Sunday, November 20, 2022, at approximately 9:52pm.
Furthermore, YCSO revealed that a red 1999 Jeep Grand Cherokee and a black Ford F-350 were traveling southbound on Avenue B.
When the Jeep attempted to pass the Ford, the Jeep attempted to use the continuous center turn lane.
However, the Jeep collided into the Ford, lost control and rolled over.
During the investigation, paramedics transported the Jeep's driver to the Yuma Regional Medical Center (YRMC).
It was there that the driver, 45-year-old Carlos Gonzalez of Somerton, succumbed to his wounds.
YCSO then made notifications to the next of kin.
