According to the California Highway Patrol, Toy was driving a Ford F-150 pickup westbound on Hermosa Road when he allegedly ran a stop sign and was T-boned by a Toyota sedan that was traveling southbound on South Edison Road.
The force of the impact caused the pickup to roll over and landed onto its roof. Toy, who was not wearing his seatbelt at the time, was partially ejected from the pickup.
Toy was pronounced dead at the scene.
The female driver of the Toyota was transported to a hospital with unspecified injuries.
It is undetermined whether alcohol or drugs were factors in the accident.
An investigation into the incident is ongoing.
According to Arin Khodaverdian, the Managing Partner and CEO Alpine Law Group, a separate investigation by an experienced attorney is necessary so as clearly uncover the circumstances surrounding the collision. “An attorney will also help the victim to navigate all the legal processes in pursuit of fair compensation and justice. Car accident claims are rarely straightforward, and, regardless of the circumstances involved, liable insurance companies will often do everything possible to limit their out-of-pocket expenses by either devaluing or outright denying your claim. It is crucial, therefore, that you have an experienced attorney on your side,” said Arin.
