Temple City Crash Claims the Life of Sheriff

Sheriff Deputy Cameron Fish Dead in Crash

An off-duty Sheriff Deputy was killed in a single-vehicle collision on Thursday morning, September 16th on Santa Anita Avenue. 

Cameron Fish, 33, was reportedly driving at high speeds around 2 a.m. with 28-year-old Diana Whang in the passenger seat. 

Just north of Freer Street, Fish lost control of his 1965 Shelby Cobra 427 and veered off the roadway. As a result, both Fish and Whang were ejected and the vehicle hit a light pole. 

Sadly, Sheriff Deputy Cameron Fish was pronounced dead at the scene. Diana Whang, on the other hand, was rushed to the hospital and is currently being treated for a head injury.\

Investigators are working to determine what may have factored into the fatal collision. 

Speeding is without a doubt one of the leading causes in motor vehicle accidents, killing 9,478 people in 2018 according to the NHTSA. It was also a contributing factor in 26% of traffic accidents that resulted in death(s). The dangers of speeding include: 

  • Loss of control of vehicle 
  • Increase in crash severity 
  • Increase in fuel consumption and/or cost 
  • Reduces the effectiveness of protection equipment
