“On Saturday, November nineteenth, police responded to a fatal traffic accident at Santa Cruz Village.  Upon their arrival, they learned that Gideon Ishim, twenty-six-years-old, fell from the back of a pickup truck.  He was taken to a hospital where he was pronounced dead on arrival.  An investigation has been carried out and an NIP has been served on the driver of the pickup pending further investigation at this time. The driver of that vehicle is liable and it is illegal to carry passengers in the back of pickups.  That is illegal.  That is not authorized, a vehicle that is authorized to take passengers.”
