CATHEDRAL CITY, CA (April 15, 2024) Noah Garcia died Tuesday night, and five others were hurt in a two-car crash on Cathedral Canyon Drive and 33rd Avenue.

At approximately 9:21 p.m., dispatchers received calls from the vicinity near Corral Road reporting a collision. According to reports, a speeding northbound vehicle collided with another car attempting a southbound left turn.

The force of the impact propelled the first vehicle northward, causing it to collide with two mailboxes and two parked vehicles.
