PALM SPRINGS, CALIFORNIA (December 3, 2017) – Nuevo Eztilo, an East Valley band, was struck by a CHP SUV on Sunday morning, according to a local news source. (map)
The accident happened at the intersection of Ramon Road and Gene Autry Trail. The members of the band were on their way home from Cathedral City, after performing at a Quinceanera. As they approached the intersection, a California Highway Patrol officer involved in a high speed pursuit slammed into the band’s vehicle.
The manager of the band, Jose Burgos Riviera, sustained major injuries including a fractured neck. Another member of the band was injured, as were two officers from the CHP vehicle. Both vehicles sustained major damages after the accident, and due to the damage to the patrol car, the CHP is saying the dash cam footage is inaccessible.
The investigation into this accident is still ongoing at this time. Lexton Law is still receiving updates, and will continue to post more information as it becomes available. If you would like to help out the band, they are playing at a fundraiser at the Panchos Nightclub in Indio on Thursday, December 7th.
