Happy Independence Day


Road:
                        Weedpatch Highway (Hwy 184), 1 mile east of 5 Freeway
Location:                  Lamont, CA
Victim:                       Baltazar Bermudez Benitez
Date of Accident:   
July 4, 2000
Inscription:
              "Baltazar Bermudez Benitez        Enero 6, 1967 Julio 4, 2000"

Description:            Here we find a crude metal cross strung together with wire.  Faded fake flowers surround the cross.  A burned out religious candle lays toppled over in front.  The cross and flowers are covered in spider webs.  This is a fine example of your lower end road memorials.

Analysis:
                 Looks like old Baltazar had one too many at a 4th of July party, and ending up celebrating with George Washington in heaven.
