Passenger Dies when Car Slides off 5 Freeway and Crashes into Tree Amid Rainy Weather

 
STOCKTON, CA (September 16, 2019) – A passenger was killed and a driver was hospitalized when a car slid off the freeway and crashed into a tree during Monday morning’s rainfall.
 
The crash happened around 10:26 a.m. on southbound 5 Freeway at Hammer Lane off-ramp.
 
According to the California Highway Patrol, a 2016 Dodge Dart was traveling southbound on the freeway in rainy conditions, at an unknown speed. The driver, 28-year-old David Ruiz, reportedly lost control of the vehicle.
 
The Dodge then spun out across all lanes of traffic, traveled down the embankment and crashed into the tree on the passenger side. The crash caused a large intrusion to the right side of the vehicle.
 
As a result, the 24-year-old woman in the passenger seat died at the scene. Her identity was being withheld until her family was notified.
 
Meanwhile, paramedics transported Ruiz to San Joaquin General Hospital in French Camp for treatment of a possible head injury.
 
CHP issued a SigAlert in the area and traffic was backed up to Eight Mile Road for about 90 minutes.
 
The incident remains under investigation.


Our deepest condolences are with the family and friends of the deceased. We also wish David Ruiz a swift and steady recovery.
