Fatal Accident Investigated

Police say Saturday's rain was at least partially to blame for an accident that claimed the life of a 30-year-old Garden City man. The single-vehicle accident happened about 6pm Saturday evening on Highway 21 and Russell Avenue in Garden City.

A witness tells police Gustavo Campos was driving north on Highway 21 when his Honda Accord hydroplaned and Campos lost control of the car. It went off the road and slammed into a light pole, snapping it in half.

Police say Campos died at the scene and was not wearing a seatbelt.

The accident tied up traffic on Highway 21 while police and firefighters gathered evidence. The investigation into that fatal accident is continuing.
