The driver of a Lexus sedan was killed this morning when his car was crushed by a big rig truck that rolled over on Interstate 5. According to reports, Gustavio Gracia, the driver of the Lexus was transitioning from the I-5 to SR 78 east, when the semi tractor trailer rig rolled over on top of the Lexus. Garcia suffered major head injuries and died at the scene.
The I-5/SR 78 exchange remained closed for five hours as the crash was investigated. The cause of the crash is still unknown, and the 1996 Freightliner will undergo a complete inspection to determine if malfunctioned.
Drugs or alcohol are not believed to have played a role in the big rig crash.
