Fatality near Brawley


chpBRAWLEY – On February 3rd, around 5:41 p.m., Gabriel Moreno Robles was driving a 1992 Honda Hatchback northbound on  Highway 111, south of Wildcat Rd., in the lefthand lane.

Robles was taken to the hospital but succumbed to his injuries, according to the CHP report, blunt force trauma. Robles was 23 and from Calipatria, CA.

This collision is still under investigation.
