Richard Bartolo has been identified by authorities as the deceased in a single vehicle truck crash that occurred on January 10 at about 3:45 a.m. in San Jose. Mr. Bartolo was reportedly asleep in the backseat of a box truck on Highway 101 when the driver of the truck apparently also fell asleep at the wheel. The truck then went out of control and turned over a number of times, heading off the road. First responders were reportedly unable to revive Mr. Bartolo, who was 64-years old. The driver of the truck was also seriously injured. The crash is currently being investigated.

We extend our deepest condolences to the friends and family of the victim during this difficult time.
