Vehicle carrying Boy Scouts kills one

49-year-old Raul Cadena lost his life when the SUV he was occupying flipped over on Saturday, June 11 a on the northbound lane of State Route 79. The SUV was carrying five passengers to Santa Ysabel at around 9:13 a.m. The crash occurred about a mile and a half south of State Route 76 near Lake Henshaw, a report from the San Diego Medical Examiner’s Office showed.

According to the preliminary investigations, the SUV veered from the roadway and crashed into a tree, causing injury to the other four occupants of the vehicle, including two Boy Scouts. Cadena was the front-seat passenger of the vehicle involved in the accident. Kevin Pearlstein of the California Highway Patrol said the vehicle’s right rear tire had tire separation, causing “the driver to over-correct and the vehicle to go off the roadway and strike a tree.”

The thoughts and condolences of the attorneys at Ritter & Associates are with the family and Boy Scout troop as they mourn their loss and recover.
