After the crash, the driver of the semi-truck didn’t stop and fled the scene.
Unfortunately, the sedan driver sustained critical injuries. When the responders arrived at the scene, they transported the victim to a hospital where he later died.
Meanwhile, the authorities described the hit-and-run vehicle as a white semi-truck with a sleeper cab, towing a 53-foot trailer. Also, they added that the trailer has a missing rear guard.
Moreover, a nearby security camera recorded the accident. Guerrero added that the detectives suspect speed was a factor in the fatal crash.
In addition, they also believe that the truck driver is the suspect since he fled the crash scene without helping the victim or reporting the incident.
