Man crushed by two big rigs as son comes to his aid


A pickup driver was fatally crushed by two big rigs in Llano, California as his son tried to assist him.

The accident occurred on April 24, 2018 around 10:00 p.m. when the driver of a Ford F-150 rolled over and halted near 170th Street East and Avenue T8.

According to theĀ San Francisco Chronicle, the driver’s son was in the area and turned around to assist his father. A few minutes later, an 18-wheeler noticed the F-150 in the roadway and stopped to help. As that semi was stopping, another big rig failed to notice the scene and crashed into the pickup, causing the F-150 to be crushed in between both semi-trucks.

The unidentified father was pronounced dead at the scene.

The California Highway Patrol is investigating both crashes.
