Driver Levar Shawka Dies after Big Rig Overturns on 8 Freeway in Boulevard

 
BOULEVARD, CA (October 28, 2019) – A truck driver died when his pineapple-hauling semi-truck overturned on Interstate 8 near Boulevard early Monday, the California Highway Patrol said.

The driver, identified Wednesday as 22-year-old Levar Shawka, veered off of eastbound 8 Freeway near the junction with Highway 94 and crashed into an embankment at about 2:30 a.m., CHP said.

CHP said the man did not wear a seat-belt inside the 53-foot tractor trailer at the time of the crash. As a result, Shawka ejected onto the freeway. He died at the scene.

It is not clear what caused the driver to drift off the roadway but CHP said drugs or alcohol are not considered factors.

The Medical Examiner’s Office said other drivers who are not involved called 911 to report the crash. As a result, the accident left debris scattered across the highway.

CHP originally said the man was 35-years-old. The Medical Examiner’s Office said Shawka as 22-years-old.

No other information is available.


Our deepest condolences and sympathies are with the family and friends of Levar Shawka.
