    Coroner case 06-8119JH -- On 10/22/2006 at 4:52PM, Rodolfo C. Munoz, age 30, from Baldwin Park, died of injuries he sustained in an off road vehicle accident. Munoz was riding on his 2004 Honda Quad ATV to assist in the recovery of another off road vehicle. He was carrying a nylon tow strap over his neck and shoulders. As he drove along a dirt road, the tow strap became entangled in the axle of his Quad pulling him over causing fatal injuries. This accident occurred at about 4:00PM on Boone Rd. approximately 4.7 miles north of State Route 247 near Means Dry Lake, in the area of Landers. The California Highway Patrol is investigating.[10232006 0015 RK]
