SAN DIEGO, CALIFORNIA – The Medical Examiner’s Office has identified a man who was killed last Saturday in an off-road crash in Borrego Springs. The man was 45-year-old Patrick Dean Perkins of Bonsall. Perkins had gone to the off-roading area with friends and was driving a sandrail-type dune buggy.
The accident occurred around 4:20 p.m. Perkins rounded a corner too quickly and the vehicle turned nearly 36 degrees and landed on his side. According to the Medical Examiner’s Office, Perkins’ passenger was able to get out but he was trapped under the roll bar and died at the scene.
Our thoughts are with the family of the man killed in this accident. It appears this was just tragic error. If you have been injured or lost a loved one in an accident caused by another person or a faulty product, you may wish you speak to a personal injury lawyer or wrongful death lawyer.
