Everardo Calvillo Jr Killed, Four Injured in Rollover Crash on I-10 in Riverside County, CA
Riverside County, CA — December 25, 2022, 32-year-old Everardo Calvillo Jr. died and four people were hurt in a rollover accident on Interstate 10 in Riverside County.
Authorities say the incident happened shortly before 9:45 p.m. on I-10 near State Route 62. Preliminary investigation suggests an 18-wheeler was eastbound on the interstate when its driver may have may an unsafe lane change. The truck entered the path of a Toyota Camry driven by Calvillo, forcing him to swerve away. The car ran off the south side of the road and overturned.
Calvillo and three girls ages 1, 14, and 15 were ejected in the rollover. Calvillo died at the scene; the 14-year-old girl suffered serious injuries while the other girls' injuries were said to be minor. A 35-year-old woman who was not ejected in the rollover received minor injuries as well.
The investigation continues. No further information is currently available.
Clearly this is a terrible incident, and the thought that a man's life was taken away on Christmas is heartbreaking. I think most everyone would agree that it's important to find out exactly how and why that occurred--which must include tracking down the big rig that allegedly ran the Toyota off the road and then left without stopping.
That's certainly a disturbing allegation. Even if a hit-and-run requires a "hit" to technically qualify, it's still quite troubling that a supposed professional driver might have "run" after people--including children--were hurt by their actions. Hopefully authorities are looking for leads to help them track down that non-contact truck; whether they deliberately fled or simply didn't realize what happened, it's best to know the whole story. Depending on what that story is, there may also be serious questions of accountability to address.
