According to NBC San Diego, The Toyota, unable to move, stayed in the middle of the freeway lanes and an off-duty San Diego Police Department (SDPD) detective sergeant in an unmarked SUV then crashed into the Toyota. The accident occurred right after midnight, and witnesses helped free some accident victims. Levi tried to escape the accident scene, although police found him, and he is now in custody.
