CALEXICO — A man died Monday after the car he was travelling in broke through a guardrail and submerged in the All-American Canal east of here.
Audry Page, 74, of Calexico was heading west on Barbara Worth Road in a sedan driven by Erika Posada, 27, also of Calexico, around 9:35 a.m. Monday, according to a California Highway Patrol collision report and press release.
As the sedan approached the curve to southbound Anza Road, the vehicle's right tires ran off the west road edge and onto the dirt shoulder, the report states.
Posada attempted to bring the tires back onto the road but overcorrected, losing control of the vehicle.
The sedan skidded sideways across the shoulder, hitting a wooden guardrail with the right rear part of the car as it reentered the roadway, the report states.
