Driver Killed, Chevette Pugh Injured in Los Angeles Big Rig Accident on 405 Freeway

 
LOS ANGELES, CA (October 9, 2019) – A driver died following a big rig crash on 405 Freeway on Tuesday, October 8.
 
According to California Highway Patrol, Craig Zackery drove a 2019 Kenworth northbound on the No. 4 lane of the 405 near Bel Air Crest Road shortly after 4 a.m.
 
Zackery drove the big rig at a speed dangerous for stopped traffic conditions. This caused him to crash into a 2014 Dodge Journey in front of him.
 
The male driver of the Dodge sustained fatal injuries in the incident. His passenger, 32-year-old Chevette Pugh, suffered major injuries, according to CHP.
 
Authorities issued a SigAlert for the Nos. 3, 4 and 5 lanes south of Bel Air Crest Road. They lifted it at about 10:30 a.m.
 
Officials described Zackery as a 49-year-old La Habra man. The deceased victim’s name is being withheld pending notification of kin.
