Alhambra-born radio host Frank Pastore killed in motorcycle accident he predicted

Christian radio host Frank Pastore died Monday after a motorcycle crash on the 210 Freeway. The former Major League Baseball pitcher predicted the accident on the radio, according to The Hollywood Reporter. He was 55.

Pastore was discussing the afterlife on the radio on Nov. 19 and said that he could die on the 210 Freeway, just three hours before a Honda struck him on his motorcycle in the carpool lane. 

“Look, you guys know I ride a motorcycle, right?” Pastore said. “So, at any moment, especially with the idiot people who cross the diamond lane into my lane, all right, without any blinkers – not that I’m angry about it – at any minute I could be spread all over the 210. But that’s (just) my body part, and that key distinction undergirds the entire Christian worldview.”

Pastore was born in Alhambra in 1957. He was a pitcher for the Cincinnati Reds and Minnesota Twins from 1979 to 1986. After baseball, he became a born-again Christian and hosted The Frank Pastore Show on KKLA for nine years, one of the most popular Christian radio talk shows in the country, according to The Hollywood Reporter.
