Vehicle Hits and Kills Tow Truck Driver in Sausalito
SAUSALITO, CA (February 27, 2019) – A tow truck driver was killed after being struck by a vehicle as he was loading a vehicle onto the tow truck’s bed Tuesday afternoon.
According to the authorities, the fatal crash occurred on southbound Highway 101 north of Spencer Avenue Tuesday at around 2:30 p.m.
The California Highway Patrol in Marin County said that the tow truck driver was loading a black Prius onto the bed of the truck when a silver Chevrolet pickup truck spun out of control and hit the tow truck. The force of the collision hit the Prius into the tow truck driver. He was pronounced dead at the scene.
CHP Officer Andrew Barclay said that a preliminary investigation indicated that the female driver of the Prius had pulled over to the right shoulder to call the tow truck. She was standing away from the vehicles and was not hurt. The Chevrolet driver suffered minor injuries and was taken to Marin General Hospital.
The incident blocked the two right lanes of the highway for about two and a half hours. All lanes were reopened at around 4:50 p.m. Neither drugs nor alcohol are suspected as a cause of the collision.
