Police report fatal Saturday OHV accident

December 18, 2018

A man is dead after an off-highway vehicle accident Saturday afternoon.

The victim, identified as 35-year-old Lake Havasu City resident Juan Candaleria, suffered fatal injuries when he lost control of his vehicle, veering into a sideways slide and causing the vehicle to roll several times, according to the Lake Havasu City Police Department.

Officers were dispatched to the scene, about one-quarter mile north of the paved road on Paso De Oro Drive, where Candaleria and his vehicle were located. The victim was wearing his seatbelt, but was not wearing a helmet. According to police officials, speed appeared to be a factor in the accident.

The accident itself remains under investigation, and no further comment in the case could be provided as of Monday.
