Hicks was killed late Sunday afternoon when he lost control of a Volkswagen he was driving on Alhambra Valley Road.

The driver was thrown from the car, falling beneath the cartwheeling car. he was pronounced dead on arrival at County Hospital at 5:35 p.m.

Two riders escaped major injuries. They were Hick's uncle, Glenn Dashiell of Martinez, and a cousin, David Pallotta of Vallejo.

Survivors include one sister, Nancy Lee; one brother, Jarl; his grandparents, Mr. and Mrs. Robert L. Hicks, both of Martinez.

Another Contra Costa County youth was also killed Sunday in a highway mishap. He was Tom Lee Lewis Moore, 19, of rural Brentwood. he died when his motorcycle crashed head on into an oncoming car on Highway 4 near Oakley. ###
