A driver in a tractor trailer truck who exited eastbound State Route 905 reportedly called 911 to report the crash, the San Diego Medical Examiner said. He told authorities when he turned onto southbound La Media Road he saw the lights of the victim’s overturned motorized scooter on the east side of the northbound lanes of traffic, the report said.
The driver stopped and noted there was another tractor trailer stopped further ahead of him in the northbound No. 3 lane of La Media Road as well as a third tractor trailer that pulled up and stopped next to it. The driver told authorities the other two tractor trailers left as he approached the unresponsive man lying in the street next to a scooter.
