Dominican baseball player kills motorcyclist
Rangers prospect Ronald Guzman was involved in a car crash in the central city of La Vega in the early hours of Tuesday morning, 25 November 2014 in which one person was killed.
Police said that Guzman was driving a Ford Explorer and hit a motorcycle, killing its 27-year old driver Eleazar Garcia at 1am on Tuesday.
Guzman is waiting to hear whether charges will be filed against him.
The 20-year old ballplayer had just finished his third season in the Rangers organization, the last two of which he spent with the Class A Hickory Crawdads. He hit .218 with a 63 RBI and six homers. He mostly played first base for Hickory, but also saw action in the outfield and at DH.
The accident comes within weeks of the death of St. Louis Cardinals outfielder Oscar Tavares in a car accident in the northern province of Puerto Plata.
