The accident happened around 11:35 pm on the southbound side of Interstate 15 near the Temecula Parkway off-ramp. A vehicle had become disabled and called for a tow truck. 28 year old Kyle Crull arrived and was preparing to hook up the customers car, standing to the left rear of the vehicle. A vehicle driven by a drunk driver careened into the disabled vehicle, then struck Kyle Crull, throwing him up onto the tow truck.
Kyle Crull was rushed to a nearby hospital, where he was tragically pronounced dead a short time later. The DUI driver that struck Kyle was identified as 19 year old Danika L. McGetrick. Danika was arrested and released on bail later the same day.
