San Diego Man, Chris White, 54, ID’d as Victim Killed in Crash
VACAVILLE, California (August 29, 2016) – Driver Chris White, 54, of San Diego was killed in a collision with a big rig that occurred on the Interstate 80 Freeway Monday afternoon, according to California Highway Patrol dispatch team.
CHP received a report about a light gray Dodge Dart which collided with and then became pinned underneath a semi-truck shortly after 2 p.m. The crash took place in the eastbound lanes of the 80 Freeway near Meridian and Weber roads.
As per the incident log, paramedics responded to the scene and confirmed that at least one person suffered fatal injuries in the wreck. The driver who died was later identified as Chris White, 54, of San Diego. He was driving a rental car at the time of the crash.
A Sig Alert was issued, forcing the No. 4 lane to shut down. All lanes were reopened about 6 p.m.
The cause of the collision remains under investigation.
“The Dodge Dart is notorious for its many mechanical defects including sudden loss of power steering,” said Attorney James Johnson. “I would hope that police are going to look into whether there was a mechanical problem that caused the car to veer off the roadway.”
The staff members of Johnson Attorneys Group thoughts and prayers are with the family members and friends of the Chris White during such difficult times.
