Fontana Police Department

The Fontana Police Department is investigating a traffic collision in which one man died and another man was critically injured on Jan. 10.

One man died and another man was critically injured in a head-on collision in northern Fontana on Jan. 10, according to the Fontana Police Department.

The incident occurred just before midnight, when a gray Mercedes C230 was traveling northbound in southbound lanes of Sierra Avenue near Baseline Avenue. The Mercedes struck a white Nissan Rogue that was traveling southbound.

Both drivers were transported to area hospitals.

The driver of the Nissan was pronounced deceased. He was identified as George Estrada, a 37-year-old Fontana man, according to the San Bernardino County Sheriff Coroner’s Division.

The wrong-way driver of the Mercedes was reported to be in critical condition on Jan. 11, police said. He was suspected to be under the influence of alcohol at the time of the collision.

----- STACY Viramontes is organizing a GoFundMe fundraiser to help pay for services for Estrada.

"Anyone who knew him can tell you endless stories of his genuine love, passion, and joy for life," Viramontes said. "His smile was contagious and he gave the most magnificent hugs.

"George went above and beyond in contributing to the world as the founder of MOVE Group, Inc., a nonprofit dedicated to spreading love and joy through dance for children, the elderly, veterans, and the homeless. He also served as a leader and coach with Successful Living Summit and ran several businesses."
