Investigators: First Fatality in Ridgecrest Earthquake May Be Man Found Dead Under Jeep
(KTLA) -- The death of a man found Tuesday pinned beneath a vehicle in Nevada, roughly 100 miles away from the epicenter of last week’s major earthquakes near Ridgecrest, is likely related to the destructive temblors, officials said. FOX40 sister station KTLA reports the death of the 56-year-old man, who hadn’t been seen since the day before the first large quake struck, would be the first related to the largest seismic event in Southern California in the last 20 years.
