A spokesperson for the El Centro Police Department said that two vehicle crash ended with a Ford Explorer pick-up truck flipping and landing atop a parked Nissan Altima. Officers said several good Samaritans helped pull the driver from the wreckage. The driver of the second car is reported to have suffered minor cuts to her hands. Those cuts are believed to have been caused by broken glass. She also reported having chest pain, likely caused by the deployment of her air bag. Both vehicles were towed from the scene. The Altima suffered minor damage to its trunk.
Members of the Calexico Police Department have also had their hands full. They are asking for help locating a man who is believed to have committed a murder on Christmas Eve. The incident took place in Salinas. Police say the suspect is 34 year-old Francisco Navarro, who is believed to be armed and dangerous. Navarro was last seen driving a custom painted Chevrolet truck. Police say they are unsure if he is attempting to flee the country. Once he is arrested he will be transported to the Imperial County Jail to be booked and processed. His bail is expected to be set in excess of $250,000.
Anyone who has information on Navarro, his whereabouts or information pertaining to the crime are asked to call the Salinas Police Department investigations division.
