GLAMIS — The Imperial Sand Dunes were the site of two fatal traffic accidents over the weekend along the death of a 4-month-old boy, possibly from sudden infant death syndrome.
The first fatal traffic accident occurred about 6 p.m. Friday in the sand dunes.
Killed was Kenneth Bishop, 43, of Bellflower, a passenger in a dune buggy that either collided with another vehicle or rolled on its own, said sheriff's Sgt. Rick Macken of the county Coroner's Office.
Macken said Bishop was reportedly ejected from the vehicle. The cause of death was expected to be determined Tuesday during an autopsy.
There was no information available about the driver of the dune buggy.
The second fatal accident occurred at 3:30 p.m. Sunday on Wash Road in the dunes area.
Macken said a pickup reportedly swerved into a three-wheel all-terrain vehicle driven by Timothy James Lindekugal, 19, of Moreno Valley, who died from his injuries.
