EL CENTRO, CA (January 28, 2021) – Tuesday morning, a woman died in a Freightliner crash on State Route 111 and Schartz Road.
The incident began at around 10:00 a.m. when a Hispanic woman drove a 2013 Fiat westbound on Schartz Road. Then, she stopped at a stop sign.
Meanwhile, a Hispanic man drove a 2013 Freightliner on State Road 111 northbound just south of Schartz Road in the second lane.
According to reports, the woman failed to let northbound traffic pass and continued into the second lane of State Route 111 northbound. As a result, she went directly into the path of the Freightliner.
Unfortunately, the male driver tried to hit the brakes but couldn’t stop in time. Thus, the Freightliner crashed into the left side of the Fiat.
The impact of the crash left the woman with blunt forced trauma and was declared dead at the scene around 10:30 a.m.
