    Default Reddaway Driver Killed in Accident

    I'm getting this second hand,he was out of FON and headed to Stockton last night,will update as new information becomes available.

    SCVNews.com | Big-rig Driver Cut Off, Killed Overnight on I-5 | 06-12-2014



    [KHTS] – A Sun Valley man was killed shortly after midnight Thursday after a big rig crashed into a Lincoln Town Car on Interstate 5, north of the Santa Clarita Valley.

    A sedan driven by Davonte T. Carr, 25, of San Jose, made an abrupt lane change at approximately 65 miles per hour, nearly colliding with the driver of a big rig, according to preliminary reports from the California Highway Patrol.

    In response, the big rig driver reportedly took evasive action to avoid a collision, resulting in his truck jack-knifing and ending up on its side.

    That is really awful. Can't they identify him by where he was coming from and where he was going? I mean should there not be record of that at the company? Won't they notice a truck missing that never got to it's destination? Really terrible thing.

    The Coroner in order to make a positive I.D will have to use X-Rays,Dental Records,it's common when body is beyond recognition,unable to find more info as Truck Accidents are so numerous here they barely make the news unless a Famous person is involved

    I haven't been able to find out more info as most truck accidents outside the LA Basin are frequent and rarely reported on,especially in the area North of LA,this is the beginning of the Tejon Pass and eventually the Infamous Grapevine,what I did hear from a fellow driver is he was domiciled out of Reno,NV and was on his way back home from Fontana,had only been with the Company for 60 Days.

    So really truly sad. And how sad that the news doesn't find it worth mentioning.

    As you know from living here its often times a multiple daily occurrence,especially in the area it happened,only makes the news if its spectacular,becomes a sig-alert or famous people are involved.

    I was getting info second hand from others,not in the loop right now and with some research found two updates,appears that some of what I heard was not correct,my apology,sad that so little is reported on someone possible saving a young mans life trying to avoid a collision.

    R.I.P Brother Bradley Dwayne Flack...


    Bradley Dwayne Flack is the truck driver who was killed in this crash. He was 53 years old and from Sun Valley. A Lincoln Town Car was also involved. That driver was Davonte T. Carr, who was 25 and from San Jose. Carr was not actually hit or at least not severely hit in the crash (see explanation below).
