RIP ERICK QUEZADA OSUNA (February 1, 1993 – December 2, 2023)

Formal pronouncement of death was made on Saturday at 3:25 p.m.

The decedent was killed when an encounter with another vehicle caused his black Ford Mustang to go off the Ventura (101) Freeway, hit a pole and burst into flames.

California Highway Patrol was notified of the crash at around 3:06 p.m. on the northbound freeway at Chesebro Road.

Witnesses told the CHP that good Samaritans tried to use dirt to put out the flames and worked to pull Osuna out of the car, which was split in half.

Racing may have been a factor in the crash.
