BAKERSFIELD, California (March 23, 2016) — Eduardo Torres Sanchez, 22, was killed early Monday morning when the car he was riding in veered off Highway 58 and down an embankment into the path of a train, according to the Bakersfield Californian.
The crash took place just before 3 a.m. after driver Mayra Leticia Anaya, 24, lost control of her 2003 Lexus while traveling westbound on Highway 58, just west of Sand Canyon Road.
The vehicle hit the center median, crashed into a guardrail and tumbled down an embankment where it landed on a Union Pacific Railroad track. Anaya managed to get out of the vehicle, but Sanchez was pinned and she was unable to free him before the vehicle was struck by a train traveling about 25 miles per hour.
The cause of the crash is under investigation by police.
