SALTON CITY — A car burst into flames and was destroyed after it spun out of control and slammed into guard rails several times.
A press release from the California Highway Patrol stated Eddie Moreno, 30, of Garden Grove was traveling south on Highway 86 just north of Treadwell Boulevard near here with a 16-year-old boy about 3:40 a.m. Sunday.
The press release stated Moreno was traveling about 65 mph. Moreno told investigators he saw an object in the road and swerved to avoid it.
His car then ran off the road into the center divider and struck a guard rail. The car skidded across the southbound lanes and struck a bridge rail on the west edge of a bridge.
