San Dimas: David Ballejos Killed When Tire Crashed Through Windshield
Posted on Jan 26, 2014
Shortly before 5 a.m. on Thursday, January 23, 2014, 62-year-old David Ballejos, of San Bernardino, was killed when a tire crashed through his windshield on Interstate 210 in San Dimas, reported the Daily Press. While traveling westbound on I-210, Gregory Thompson’s 1995 Ford Ranger lost a back tire. The tire bounced over the center divider onto the hood and through the windshield of Ballejos’ eastbound 2008 Toyota Camry, fatally striking his head. He was pronounced dead at the scene. Authorities are investigating the accident.
The California Office of Traffic Safety indicates the 88 people were killed or injured in traffic accidents that occurred in San Dimas in 2011.

That year, San Dimas ranked 56th out of 94 cities with populations of between 25,001 and 50,000 for its incidence of fatal and injury collisions.
