The accident happened around 6:00 pm on the westbound side of State Route 94. A white Dodge pickup truck towing a utility trailer had broken down, and the driver called for a tow truck. The tow truck arrived and began loading up the pickup truck as the driver of the pickup stood to one side and watched. A Lexus sedan exiting on the off-ramp struck the pickup truck, sending the utility trailer into the driver standing to one side.
The pickup truck’s driver was tragically pronounced dead at the scene as a result of the accident. The driver of the tow truck was rushed to the hospital in unknown condition after the accident. The driver of the Lexus remained at the scene and cooperated with authorities in their investigation, which is ongoing.
“Sadly, there are no words that can comfort all family members and friends as they cope with such tragic loss,” said the attorneys from Lexton Law. “Our thoughts and prayers are with all parties affected in this tragedy as they try to piece together what happened.”
