Fatal Rollover Accident at Oak Valley Road and The Old Road
CASTAIC, CA (February 2, 2021) – A man died in a rollover accident Saturday afternoon in Castaic, authorities said.
The accident happened just after 1:00 p.m. on January 23, in the area of Oak Valley Road and The Old Road.
Firefighters responded to the site after a passerby reported an overturned pickup truck in the hills. Due to its remote location on a dirt road, the crash site had gone unnoticed for some time, with initial interviews from the passenger stating they were out there since Thursday.
When they arrived, they pronounced one person dead at the scene.
Medical examiners identified the deceased as 31-year-old Benjamin Marquez IV of Castaic.
A second occupant of the vehicle, a Castaic man in his 30s, sustained two broken legs and suspected head trauma. Paramedics airlifted the patient to Henry Mayo Newhall Hospital.
Further details about the cause and circumstances of the crash remain under investigation
