A 32-year old woman, was on the north side of Highway 18 in Crestline a few months ago when an car accidenttook her life. She was driving behind a truck. A truck on the south side, sideswiped the truck on the north side causing his cargo, wooden roof trusses, to fly off the truck and crash through the windshield of the woman's car. The woman lost control of the car, hit a stone pillar and ended up in an embankment. She died at the scene.
After an investigation, it was determined that the truck on the south side crossed the double yellow line when he waved to a friend on the side of the road. He may have been driving without a wide-load permit. The driver of the truck was charged with vehicular manslaughter and is awaiting a November hearing.
My condolences go out to the family of the woman.
