Driver Dies in High-Speed Crash on Shamrock Boulevard in Duarte
DUARTE, CA (July 18, 2020) – A 29-year-old Duarte man died in that city Saturday evening when the car he drove slammed into an ice cream truck.

Officials extricated the driver from the car. However, paramedics declared that person dead.
The man was identified as Miguel Colon Gonzalez of Duarte.
Gonzalez drove recklessly and fast southbound from Hurstview Avenue when his Honda Civic collided with the 1988 Chevy-model truck, injuring the 61-year-old Montebello man behind the wheel.
