On August 15, 2012 at approximately 11:56 pm Officers were
sent to 100 Westgate Parkway on a motorcycle crash. Upon their arrival
they discovered a subject lying in the roadway. Randy Baca Jr., WM, 27
had been eastbound on Westgate Parkway. He lost control of his 2008
Yamaha V-Star motorcycle.
He struck a tree that is in the center median
at this location. Baca died at the scene as a result of injuries he
received in the collision. Justice of the Peace Debbie Horn has ordered
a toxicology screen. It appears speed is a factor in this crash. Baca
was not wearing a helmet.
