Marcellino Cabrera III Dead, Ramses Gonzales Injured after Hesperia Suspected DUI Accident
HESPERIA, CA (October 14, 2019) — A suspected DUI crash claimed the life of 46-year-old Marcellino Cabrera III on Saturday, October 12.
The incident happened around 8:00 pm, in the area of Main Street and Mariposa Road.
Cabrera’s 1994 Honda Accord was t-boned by a 2002 BMW as he drove across an intersection.
Deputies found Cabrera unresponsive inside his Honda upon arrival. Cabrera was later pronounced dead as a result of the impact.
Officers also discovered the silver 2002 BMW on top of a down palm tree in the In-n-Out parking lot. Officials assisted the driver of the BMW, Ramses Gonzales, a resident of Rialto, out of his vehicle.
Paramedics later airlifted Gonzales to Loma Linda Medical Center for further treatment. Medics listed him in critical condition. However, there has been no update on his current status.
Through investigation, deputies believe that Gonzalez drove his BMW west on Main Street. He then approached the intersection on Mariposa Road where he eventually crashed into the northbound Honda Accord.
Sheriff’s officials stated that alcohol and/or drugs may have been a factor in the incident.
Officials shut down the westbound lanes of Main Street from Mountain Vista Avenue to the 15 Freeway northbound on-ramp until around 2:30 am on Sunday.
