Man Crushed To Death In Roadside Mishap

A man who was apparently attempting to make a roadside repair Monday afternoon was crushed to death after the vehicle he was working on fell off a carjack, the Riverside County Coroner's Office is reporting.

Anza resident David Baxter, 55, was pronounced dead at 2:36 p.m., according to the coroner.

Baxter was found on the roadway in the 54000 block of Cave Rock Road in Anza. He was crushed by a truck that slipped off a carjack, the coroner reported.


The time of injury is unknown, according to the coroner.

It's not immediately clear if the truck was his.
