Deadly Crash on I-15 near Adams Avenue
A crash involving a big rig on Friday morning left one person dead in San Diego.
California Highway Patrol reported that the accident occurred on March 4th around 2:20 a.m.
The semi-truck reportedly lost control on the rain-slicked roade and jackknifed on the I-15 Freeway.
A Honda CRV driven by an unidentified woman then slammed into the stopped truck and ended up underneath its trailer.
The woman had to be extricated from the Honda and sadly died at the hospital after.
It is unclear if the truck driver suffered injuries.
Further details will be provided once an investigation is concluded.
It is most often those in passenger cars that are killed in large truck collisions. Semi trucks typically weigh 20-30 times as much as passenger cars which leaves occupants of smaller cars more vulnerable.
It is also much more difficult for larger trucks to stop so their braking capability can also be a factor in these collisions.
According to the D.O.T., in 2019 67% of fatal collisions involving large trucks were occupants of a passenger car.
