Gary Shaw, promoter of Diego Corrales, provided BoxingScene with some additional details on the tragic accident that claimed the life of Corrales.
On Monday evening, at the Fort Apache and Hacienda roads in southwest Las Vegas, Corrales was riding on a racing motorcycle at a very high rate of speed and crashed into the back of a car. The impact of the collision sent Corrales flying from his motorcycle and upon hitting the ground, he was struck by another vehicle.
At the present, there are no signs of alcohol being involved.
