Jared Intravia Dies After Colliding With Bale of Hay on West Avenue E Near 50th Street West
LANCASTER, CA (January 16, 2019) – A 32-year-old man was killed early Tuesday in a multi-vehicle crash that was caused by a bale of hay that tumbled off an overturned big rig on West Avenue E near 50th Street West.
The incident happened around 5:45 a.m. just east of 50th Street West, according to the California Highway Patrol.
Jared Intravia was traveling eastbound on Avenue E in a Honda Civic when a bale of hay tumbled off a 2016 Kenworth tractor, heading westbound on Avenue E. The big rig, driven by a 40-year-old Brawley man, drifted to the right shoulder causing the second trailer to overturn as the trucker overcorrected. Multiple large bales of hay tumbled onto the roadway, causing a multi-vehicle crash.
Intravia’s Honda was one of the vehicles struck by the hay bales. He was pronounced dead at the scene, and four others were taken to Antelope Valley Hospital. The big rig driver was unharmed in the collision.
Neither alcohol nor drugs were believed to be a contributing source to the crash.
Our heartfelt sympathies go out to the bereaved family and friends of Jared Intravia.
