Barry Blunt Identified in Fatal Lakeland Crash, Jose Montejo Arrested for DUI

 
LAKELAND, CA (August 14, 2019) – A 67-year-old man died in an alleged DUI Crash at Grand Avenue and Vail Street early Sunday morning.
 
The Riverside County Coroner’s Office identified the victim as Barry Blunt of Lake Elsinore.
 
The crash happened at 2:31 a.m. in the unincorporated community of Lakeland Village as per the California Highway Patrol.
 
A 2006 Buick Rendezvous SUV traveled northbound on Grand Avenue. In addition, Blunt drove a 1972 Chevy Chevelle in the opposite direction on Grand Avenue. After that, the SUV drifted across double yellow lines and subsequently crashed head-on into Blunt’s vehicle.
 
Blunt died from the crash.
 
In addition, the driver of the SUV, 22-year-old Jose Mateo Montejo of Lake Elsinore, sustained moderate injuries. As a result, first responders transported him to Inland Valley Medical Center for treatment. However, Blunt and Montejo were the sole occupants of their respective vehicles.
 
The authorities arrested Montejo for felony suspicion of gross vehicular manslaughter while intoxicated. In addition, he faces charges of misdemeanor driving without a license that was suspended because of drunken driving.
