HEMET MAN KILLED IN JOHNSON VALLEY JEEP CRASH WAS NOT WEARING A SEAT BELT

A Hemet man was killed in a tragic off-road vehicle crash in Johnson Valley early Tuesday morning. According to County Fire Captain Danny Stamps, the man, identified by the County Coroner as Nathan Alan Comstock, 39, and three passengers, including his wife, went for a night-time ride about 9:00 Monday night in the Means Dry Lake area of Johnson Valley. Stamp said they got lost during the ride and at about 2:45 a.m. decided the way out was to go down a very steep and treacherous trail called “Turkey Claw Trail.” The passengers got out of the 1989 Jeep Cherokee and when Comstock started driving down the trail, the vehicle rolled over 10 to 12 times and he was ejected. CHP investigators say he was not wearing a seatbelt and was crushed in the rollover. Stamp said Comstock’s wife sat with him for hours while family members attempted to get a cell phone signal to call 911 to be rescued. County Paramedics were finally dispatched at 3:38 am Tuesday morning where Nathan Comstock was declared dead at 4:52 a.m.
