WHITEWATER, CA (March 16, 2020) – A 40-year-old man died in a crash on the 10 Freeway near Whitewater Road on March 12.
The authorities identified the man as Gilberto Avila of Yuca. Police revealed that Avila was struck and killed by a car on the 10 Freeway near Whitewater Road at around 3:00 p.m.
35-year-old Aaron Oliver of Arizona was in the Chrysler Sebring that hit Gilberto Avila, who was standing near a tow-truck that had come for an earlier solo-car crash.
