After the tragedy suffered by a San Juan truck driver en route in the province of Catamarca became known, a photo of the man and information about his life emerged. Ricardo Exequiel Orozco was 32 years old and from the Santa Lucía department. Furthermore, he was the father of a child.

According to sources close to Orozco, the man did a little bit of everything to earn a living, including transporting crops here in San Juan. But recently he got a job as a truck driver in a mine in Catamarca and destiny took him to that province.

Orozco lost his life after crashing in Fiambalá, Catamarca. The victim suffered serious injuries after the accident that occurred while he was heading towards the Cordillera.

According to the Catamarca newspaper El Ancasti, the road accident occurred minutes before 5 p.m. on National Route No. 60, near the Loro Huasi area, near “Las Angosturas” and about 50 kilometers from the city of Tinogasta. Orozco was driving a truck with a trailer, a white Iveco Cursor 330 brand, when the vehicle overturned to the right side, ending up on the shoulder.

It is estimated that the bad weather conditions and the low slope of the route influenced the driver to lose control and finally overturn. Due to the violence of the rollover, the driver was ejected, becoming trapped under the vehicle and dying instantly.

Witnesses passing through the area alerted authorities about the accident, which allowed emergency services to quickly intervene.

At the scene, personnel from the Fiambalá Police Station, Police Criminalistics, National Gendarmerie, Health professionals and Fiambalá Volunteer Firefighters worked intensively. The required actions were carried out under the directives of the current prosecutor of the Court of the Fifth Judicial Circumscription, based in Tinogasta.
