Witnesses told police that Garcia had been partying at a home on Gila Avenue. At some point he left the party, and later a group of friends and family left in a truck to look for him. They found him lying in the roadway on Tetakusim Road, but while Garcia's cousin was trying to help him out of the road, a passing truck struck Garcia, and then a pick-up truck hit both men. Garcia was pronounced dead at the scene, while his cousin was taken to the hospital with non-life threatening injuries.
