A motorist is dead and a 40-year-old semi-trailer driver is facing charges following a two-vehicle accident shortly after midnight in Ontario on Sept. 11. According to a report, the fatal crash was believed to have been caused by intoxicated driving.
According to police, the motorist died from injuries sustained after a man operating a semi-truck suddenly swerved and drove into the path of his sedan. Instead of stopping to help the victim, the truck driver allegedly continued eastbound on 60 Freeway where he crashed into a concrete barrier at an on-ramp. At this point, the man supposedly left his truck and walked down the highway for approximately a mile before police discovered and detained him near the Milliken Avenue on-ramp.
