On the evening of August 1 a fatal collision occurred in the 900 block of V Street.

22-year-old Luis Rodriguez Amezcua drove a 2014 black Camaro without stopping at a stop sign and hit into two other vehicles.

Some who witnessed the collision said Amezcua was “driving at a high rate of speed, never slowing down for the stop sign.”

At first the suspect left his two passengers behind and fled from his vehicle, but officers found him a block away.

One of the two passengers in Amezcua’s car was flown to a hospital suffering major injuries. The other passenger was pronounced dead at the scene.

Amezcua was arrested for DUI, vehicular manslaughter and hit and run.
