1 Killed in Multi-vehicle Truck Accident on S.R. 4 in Stockton, CA
Stockton, CA — November 16, 2023, one person was killed in a multi-vehicle truck accident just after 5:30 a.m. along Route 4.
Authorities report that a 35-year-old man was traveling in an eastbound passenger vehicle along Route 4 in the vicinity of Highway 99 when the accident occurred.
He allegedly changed from the eastbound lane to the westbound lane in order to pass a Hyundai and a Toyota. Due to heavy fog, he didn't see the oncoming 18-wheeler until it was too late to avoid a collision. The collision with the 18-wheeler threw his vehicle back into the eastbound lane where it also crashed with the Hyundai and the Toyota. After crashing with those two vehicles, the car veered back into the westbound lane where it collided with an oncoming Ford. The passenger vehicle then veered off of the road and came to a stop in a roadside embankment. The man—whose identity has not yet been released to the public—was declared deceased as a result of the injuries he incurred as a result of the accident.
The accident is still under investigation by local authorities. There are no additional details available at this point in time pertaining to this incident.
