RIVERSIDE, Calif. --- California Baptist University
freshman baseball player Rudy Ledesma was killed Sept. 24 in a single-vehicle
fatality accident on the 91 freeway in Corona, Calif.
Ledesma was pronounced dead at 3:05 a.m. about 30 minutes
after his 2001 Dodge Dakota hit a guardrail, flipped and smashed into a
concrete pillar, according to authorities. He was returning to campus after visiting
with a friend.
The 18-year-old collegiate freshman was an Anaheim native
and had begun fall workouts with the Lancers' baseball team. He graduated from
Cypress High School in 2011 where he was a two-time all-league
selection while leading Cypress to a pair of Empire League championships.
"We are deeply saddened by this tragedy and the loss of one
of our family members," said CBU Director of Athletics Dr. Micah Parker. "Our
thoughts and our prayers are with Rudy's family during this difficult time."
