Operators of motorcycles and the driver of a passenger car clashed Sunday in Orosi, and the vehicle driver died of injuries.
He was identified by the Judicial Investigating Organization as Jose Pablo Lorea Artavia, 29.
Lorea was reported to have struck a motorcycle with his vehicle when he was leaving the parking lot of a supermarket. For some reason agents said he returned to smash into other motorcycles.
A chase ensued, and a motorcycle rider was struck and injured by the Lorea vehicle, agents said. That was when the motorcycle operators administered a beating to Lorea, said agents. The motorcyclists are from San José, they said.
