According to My Valley News, Early in the morning on May 19, 2017, around 12:45 am, several witnesses called 911 to report a crash at the intersection of Van Buren Boulevard and King Avenue in Riverside, California. Riverside Fire and Police Departments responded, and upon arriving at the scene, found parts of the vehicle spread across the road. First responders also found a white Toyota Avalon with significant damage to its front side.
The passenger of the wrecked Toyota was alive, albeit barely, and had suffered severe, traumatic injuries in the Riverside car accident. He was later identified as 21-year-old Prince Deavon Armony Franky Ketcha. The medics transported Mr. Ketcha to Parkview Community Hospital Medical Center, and within one hour, hospital staff pronounced him dead. The driver of the vehicle, who was seen walking after the accident, suffered only minor injuries.
California Highway Patrol Sergeant Eugene Norris said that the Toyota had been driving at a high rate of speed when it drifted to the right of the road and ran directly into a traffic signal pole. The cause of the crash remains under investigation, and Sgt. Norris said that alcohol or drug intoxication have not yet been ruled out as contributing factors in the accident.
