Medical Emergency Leads to Death of 21-year-old Riverside Man on SR-62

DESERT CENTER, Calif. – A 21-year man died after suffering from an unknown medical emergency while driving, authorities said.


On Sunday, May 19, 2019, at around 11:55 a.m., Anthony Quezada, of Riverside, was driving a 2007 Honda Accord westbound on SR-62, west of San Bernardino line. California Highway Patrol officials estimate his speed at around 65 miles per hour when  the Accord traveled left, across eastbound lanes of SR-62 and came to a rest in the open desert shoulder.

Witnesses stopped and made contact with Quezada, who was suffering from an unknown medical emergency. An off-duty law enforcement officer arrived and began providing medical aid to Quezada, who died at the scene as a result of his medical condition.


This collision is still under investigation.  Alcohol and/or drugs did not appear to be a factor.
