Jacqueline Abarca Dead, Man Injured in Semi-Trailer Accident at Blue Diamond Road and South Torrey Pines Drive
LAS VEGAS, NV (June 12, 2019) – A May 31 crash at Blue Diamond Road and South Torrey Pines Drive involving a semi-truck has turned fatal.
Jacqueline Arbarca, 23, sustained critical injuries in the two-vehicle crash that unfolded that Friday.
According to a statement by Nevada Highway Patrol, a Honda Civic traveling at speeds of about 88 mph in a 55-mph zone was traveling eastbound on Blue Diamond Road. A westbound semi-truck hauling double trailers attempted a left turn onto South Torrey Pines Drive.
However, the Honda Civic subsequently struck the truck’s second trailer, driving under it, and ripped off its own roof.
Following the brute impact, the male driver and front-seat passenger, later identified as Arbarca of Las Vegas, suffered critical injuries, galvanizing paramedics to transport them to UMC.
In addition, a 3-year-old girl in a rear child safety seat escaped major injuries yet was brought to UMC as a precaution.
The driver of the semi-truck reported only minor injuries, say reports, and is cooperating with investigators.
According to Trooper Buratczuk with NHP, Abarca succumbed to her injuries nearly a week after the devastating crash. Still, authorities are seeking the ultimate causes.
We would like to take this moment to express our condolences to the bereaved family and friends of Jacqueline Abarca.
