Vehicle Rollover Results in Fatality

Los Angeles: One person died and four others were injured Saturday when the car they were riding in overturned, ejecting two of its occupants.

Oscar Martinez was driving his vehicle on January 13, 2007, at around 6:00 P.M., on Stocker Street near La Brea Avenue. Martinez lost control of his vehicle sending it airborne into a dirt embankment and rolling over.

Two passengers were ejected from the vehicle and sustained critical injuries. They were taken to a local hospital for treatment, along with the other occupants of the car, who suffered less serious injuries. Glen Hyde Jr., 19, of Inglewood died a short time later after failing to respond to medical treatment.


It is believed that speed was the major factor in the crash and criminal charges against the driver are pending the outcome of the investigation. Drugs or alcohol are not suspected to be factors in the crash. Investigators have determined that the two passengers who were ejected from the vehicle were not wearing seatbelts.

Anyone with information regarding this incident is asked to call South Traffic Detectives, Jimmy Rinder, Rodney Jones or Officer Carol Mitchell, at 323-290-6063 or 213-485-7336. On the weekends or during off-hours, the public can call the toll-free 24-hour anonymous tip line at 1-877-LAWFULL (1-877-529-3855).
