We are deeply saddened to report that two-year IBEW 1245 member Miguel Flores sustained fatal injuries while driving from Eureka to Fresno on Dec. 30. Brother Flores worked as a line clearance tree trimmer for Mario’s Tree Service, and had just turned 30 years old earlier this month.
Flores was travelling alone east bound on Highway 37 in Vallejo on the bridge by Mare Island. A semi travelling westbound hit the concrete center divider and also jumped the divide wall. The semi hit the truck that Flores was driving, resulting in the loss of his life. Flores and the rest of his crew were on their way home to spend time their families for New Year’s when this tragedy happened. Click here for the news report.
Flores leaves behind one child, approximately two years old. Please keep Brother Flores’ young family in your thoughts and prayers.
