sad.

single vehicle wreck??

bad / wet weather down that way ?

Hard to tell but it sounds like he perhaps had a medical emergency, perhaps a heart attack or stroke...

It was single vehicle. Leroy was a former professional trucker and a good driver. He was probably dozing off or suffered some kind of stroke. He veered off the highway and struck a tree. Unfortunately he was not wearing his seat belt. Tragic. He was a class act and a good ball player. Did well with Seattle after he left Angels and played a year in Japan.

any Angels fan who hasn't purchased and read* Rob's book should be banned from AngelsWin. 

 

*if you happen to be a graduate of usc, ask someone to read it to you 

How would that help a USC graduate, except at bedtime?
