The driver of a Toyota Tacoma was killed Saturday in a solo-vehicle crash in Palmdale.
Dallas Barretto was 28, according to the Los Angeles County coroner’s office. The California Highway Patrol reported he was from Lake Los Angeles.
The crash occurred at 2:45 a.m. near 125th Street East and Palmdale Boulevard, according to the CHP.
The truck was eastbound on Palmdale Boulevard, east of 125th Street East, where it made an unsafe turning movement and veered out of control overturning onto the north shoulder, CHP Officer Monique Mischeaux said.
Barretto was ejected and pronounced dead at the scene, Mischeaux said. He was the sole occupant of the pickup truck.
