A male has passed away in an off-road racing event in California, according to CBS Los Angeles. The authorities said the 19-year-old male was killed in Llano early Sunday morning.
The incident happened at approximately 3:30 am local time. There were as many as 1,000 people at the desert event.
The authorities said that the driver of the 2016 Polaris Razor XP900 was killed when he made a sharp left. The driver has been identified as Cristian Lopez.
He was dead at the scene. His passenger Aaron Iribe was seriously injured.
Iribe was transported to Antelope Valley Hospital. No update on his condition was given.
The police believe that alcohol and speed was a factor in the crash.
This event comes as California — and the entire country — battles with the coronavirus. California has banned social gatherings.
Before the authorities arrived, much of the people, who were at this off-road racing event departed the scene. However, while they left the area, they left their ATV and other identifiable places of evidence to show that they were there.
The location also had a stage for a live band. However, since March, everything has been shut down in the state due to the coronavirus pandemic.
Right now, much of the State of California has a stay-at-home order.
