The Department of Public Safety released the identity of the ATV driver who died in a collision on State Route 347 south of Maricopa yesterday.
Joshua G. Dearo-Garcia, 24, of Maricopa was found deceased on scene by police Feb. 14 at 12:35 p.m., said DPS spokesman Bart Graves.
DPS said Dearo-Garcia was driving a Honda quad that failed to stop at a stop sign while attempting to make a right turn onto SR 347 near SR 84.
“The ATV collided with the rear side of a Ford heavy-duty pickup truck,” Graves said.
The collision closed a portion of SR 347 for hours after emergency crews and police processed the scene.
Graves said the driver of the truck was not injured.
