CAR ACCIDENT: Speeding Driver Slams into Wall, Killed
February 22 2010
Irvine – A Cadillac driver who was reportedly going at a high speed along Interstate 5 was ejected from the vehicle and killed Monday after hitting a freeway sound wall, the California Highway Patrol said.
Reports show that the driver of the southbound Cadillac SRX was on the carpool lane at around 10:35 a.m. when he lost control of the vehicle and veered across all lanes before he hit the sound wall.
The vehicle reportedly flipped over and rested on its roof on the Culver Drive on-ramp.
The unidentified driver died at the scene while a male passenger was taken to a hospital to be treated for his injuries.
Another vehicle had to be towed after it hit a detached wheel of the Cadillac. The on-ramp was closed for at least two hours as authorities remove the debris and investigate the crash.
