San Diego Fiery Collision on 15 Freeway Kills Driver and Injures Passenger

 
SAN DIEGO, CA (October 15, 2019) — A fiery collision on 15 Freeway Tuesday morning left a 34-year-old driver dead and his 24-year-old passenger injured.
 
The crash involved a 2006 Pontiac G5 sedan and a 2009 Kenwood big rig. It occurred on northbound 15 Freeway south of Miramar Way at around 3:05 a.m. This is according to California Highway Patrol Officer Jake Sanchez.
 
It wasn’t immediately clear why the Pontiac rear-ended the semi-truck in a middle lane of the freeway. The sedan ended up engulfed in flames in the center divider.
 
The collision trapped a 34-year-old man from Hartford, Connecticut, inside the Pontiac. He died at the scene. Authorities withheld his name pending family notification.
 
On the other hand, the passenger, a 24-year-old Escondido woman, was able to get out of the car. Emergency responders then took her to Sharp Memorial Hospital for treatment of major injuries.
 
The 46-year-old San Diego man driving the big rig remained at the scene uninjured.
 
Firefighters were able to put out the flames within 15 minutes. Meantime, the CHP officers shut down all northbound lanes during the investigation and emergency response. All lanes reopened by 5:20 a.m.
