In an unspeakable tragedy, a 23-year old woman walked in front of a 2007 Ford in the number 4 lane of southbound I-57. The woman, from San Dimas, was pronounced dead on the scene while California Highway Patrol sought to reconstruct the scene. The tragic accident took place around 8:30pm on Thursday evening.
The Highway Patrol is currently investigating the incident as a traffic collision. No word has been released yet as to whether the driver stopped to help or if this was another hit-and-run incident. If the driver was injured, his current status is also unknown. Due to the highly sensitive nature of this type of accident, specific details are being kept very private.
Friday’s traffic reports were none the cheerier as a rear-end collision involving a DUI resulting in the loss of a life. A woman was operating her vehicle under the influence and slammed into the back of a disabled vehicle, killing the driver inside. The accident, which took place on I-91 West on Friday morning around 1:00am, involved a 2000 Jetta and a stalled Toyota Corolla, which was stuck in a moving traffic lane unable to get to the shoulder. The Jetta was operating at a high rate of speed in the wee hours of the morning and collided with the vehicle. California Highway Patrol is currently investigating the incident. It urges any witnesses to this event to contact CHP immediately.
