The accident happened on Saturday evening around 8:20 p.m on the eastbound side of I-80. A 47 year old man under suspicion of being intoxicated was driving a blue Mercedes eastbound when he swerved into a Nissan sedan. The impact caused the Nissan to flip over, sliding into the westbound lanes and striking three other vehicles.
TFour of the five people inside the Nissan were killed as a result of the accident. They were identified as 50 year old Daryl Horn and his son Joe, and 52 year old Troy Biddle and his son Baden. The Biddle’s were from Bainbridge, Washington, and were related to the Horn’s by marriage. The only passenger in the Nissan to survive the accident was Jared Horn. Jared is a pitcher for the UC Berkeley team and was 22nd on the list for the MLB.Com’s prospects for 2016.
Five people from the other vehicles were also injured, including a child. The injuries were described as minor to moderate. Fred Lowe initially left the scene, but was arrested a short time later after attempting to flee on foot. The investigation into the accident is ongoing, but initial reports indicate Lowe had a lengthy history of DUI.
