BRAWLEY — A three-vehicle accident Monday night southwest of here left one man dead and seven people injured.
The accident was reported at 11:13 on Forrester Road just south of Imler Road, stated a press release from the California Highway Patrol.
The name of the man killed was not available.
Imperial County Sheriff's Coroner Investigator Sgt. Rick Macken said the man was classified as a John Doe because investigators are not yet positive on his identity.
Macken said investigators think he might be a 40-year-old male from El Centro but his body was burned to the extent where they will need to use dental charts to identity him. He added it will take about two weeks to identity the body.
