Task Force Seeks Tow Truck Driver Who May Have Witnessed Crash Before Dixon Officer-Involved Shooting


DIXON (CBS13) – Authorities are searching for a potential witness to a single-vehicle crash that occurred moments before California Highway Patrol officers fatally shot the driver in Dixon in January, the Solano County Major Crimes Task Force announced on Thursday.


A car crashed just off the shoulder of the road along I-80 near Dixon Avenue at around 10:30 p.m. on Jan. 30, authorities said.


The task force said it is seeking a good Samaritan tow truck operator who stopped near Midway Road, just south of Dixon Avenue, to offer aid to the driver – later identified as Karl Waler, 29 – before California Highway Patrol officers arrived at the scene.


The operator was described as a man with dark, collar-length hair and a full beard. He was driving what authorities said was “a flatbed style tow truck with either a white or yellow cab.”
