Tow Truck Driver Struck and Killed on 210 Freeway in La Verne

 

A tow truck driver was struck and killed Monday night on the eastbound Foothill (210) Freeway in La Verne and the driver of the vehicle suspected of hitting the person was being questioned by authorities.

 

Witnesses reported a white BMW was being driven erratically near Fruit Street about 8:45 p.m. and nearly crashed into vehicles, according to the California Highway Patrol.

 

Moments later, officers found a person down on the right side of the eastbound freeway and began to receive calls that a semi was slowing the suspect vehicle down, the CHP said.

 

Video from the scene showed investigators examining the vehicle, which was stopped on the right shoulder of the freeway with the semi a short distance in front of it.

 

The driver was arrested, NBCLA photographer Alex Vasquez reported from the scene.

 

The age, gender and name of the victim were not disclosed.

Why does it seem this happens in some states such as California more often then other states?

 

Does it have something to do with the population and types of roadways or something else?

 

Thought's are with the Family, Friends and Coworkers. Sad to see yet another Tower Down.

Hi Lou Ann ... Christine and I send our prayers and condolences to you in the loss of your son. Being from California, I'm familar with the drive between San Diego and Vegas. I know how fast travelers drive and how stupid they are just to make time.  But, at that early time of the morning when the crash occurred, perhaps the driver of the semi fell asleep? If you need help applying to the Wall of the Fallen in memory of Roque, please feel free to contact me.     R.
