Fatal Crash Involving Big Rig on I-8
Early Monday morning, there was a fatal crash involving a semi-truck on Interstate 8. According to ABC San Diego News Channel 10, the incident happened sometime before 2:30 a.m., just east of Ribbonwood Road. Very few details about this tractor-trailer crash have been released, but we do know that the large truck was hauling a 53-foot trailer loaded with pineapple at the time of the wreck. For currently unknown reasons, the truck driver lost control of the semi-truck.
The big rig overturned and went down an embankment. Initial reports indicate that the truck driver was not buckled up at the time of the crash. That person was ejected during the crash and did not survive his injuries. This fatal semi-truck crash is likely still under investigation with local law enforcement authorities.
