Fatal Car Crash on Monte Vista Avenue near Base Line Road in Claremont
CLAREMONT, CA (July 22, 2020) – A 20-year-old Montclair man died following a car crash on Monte Vista Avenue, Wednesday evening.
According to the Claremont Police Department, the incident happened at about 9:30 PM. For reasons still under investigation, a northbound vehicle ran a red light. Then, the driver struck an eastbound vehicle near Base Line Road.
