A driver was killed after he was ejected in a crash on I-10 early Thursday morning. Authorities have identified the victim as 28-year-old Sammy Labastida of La Quinta. The fatal crash occurred on eastbound I-10 west of Date Palm Drive around 1 a.m.

Police say Labastida was traveling east in a 2000 Nissan when the vehicle drifted left and struck a guardrail. The driver was ejected from the vehicle, which overturned. Labastida was pronounced dead at the scene.

Police shut down both lanes of the interstate to investigate the accident. The fatal single-vehicle crash remains under investigation. However, police say the driver was not wearing his seat belt when the crash occurred.

“Our hearts go out to the victim’s loved ones. Always buckle your seat belt in the car, no matter how short the trip,” said Attorney Walter Clark, founder of Walter Clark Legal Group.
