Christian radio show host and former Major League pitcher Frank Pastore died Monday, nearly a month after suffering injuries in a motorcycle crash in Duarte while on his way home after broadcasting his daily radio show.
The 55-year-old Upland resident who played baseball at Damien High School in La Verne died early Monday afternoon, according to a statement on the website of Glendale-based KKLA 99.5 FM, from where Pastore broadcast the “Frank Pastore Show.”
Pastore was transferred to an Upland hospital last week, according to Rosa Saca, spokeswoman for Los Angeles County-USC Medical Center, where he was previously being treated following the Nov. 19 crash on the 210 Freeway near Buena Vista Street in Duarte.
He was riding in the carpool lane when he was struck by a 2004 Hyundai Sonata being driven by a 56-year-old Glendora woman, California Highway Patrol officials said in a written statement.
The investigation concluded that the crash was an accident, and nothing criminal such as impaired driving was suspected, CHP Officer William Bury said. The driver was not arrested or cited.
