Kansas City Royals pitcher Yordano Ventura, 25, died in his native Dominican Republic Jan. 22, 2017. Ventura attended a festival in San Jose de Ocoa, then early the next morning drove on a road heading toward Juan Adrian, about 46 kilometers away. He crashed just before reaching Juan Adrian. The road Ventura took is known as particularly treacherous for its curves, fog and moisture on the roads. At the crash site, a new guardrail stands where remnants of the one destroyed by the accident remain. A house-shaped memorial can be seen (rear right).
