Freeway Worker Fatally Struck by SUV
On Monday, a roadway worker was killed when an out-of-control SUV struck him on Interstate 15. According to ABC News Channel 10, the incident happened at the onramp near Westfield North County Mall, just after 2:00 p.m. Although very few details have been released, we do know that the employee, who was 21 years old, was working on a sprinkler system in the median at the time of the incident.
Although the cause of this crash is likely still under investigation, authorities on the scene suspected that the driver of the SUV might have been under the influence of drugs. The driver was transported to the Palomar Medical Center and could likely face criminal charges in the coming days.
