SAN DIEGO (CBS 8) - A man from Oak Park is dead after a rollover crash on a freeway on-ramp. Then, moments later, a truck lost control and crashed just feet from the original crash site.
It happened around 11:30 p.m. Saturday on the Federal Boulevard on-ramp to the westbound 94.
Sixty-year-old Larry Hanley lost control of his SUV while taking the curve and rolled over on the driver's side. He died at the scene.
While authorities were responding to this crash, a truck on SR 94 slammed into a concrete wall and ended up on the side of the freeway.
"Came in between two vehicles. One a fire truck and one an unoccupied CHP patrol car and sideswiped both vehicles. Subsequently came down onto the ramp and overturned," explained Sgt. Kevin Mansior with the California Highway Patrol.
Firefighters had to use the jaws of life to pull the driver out of the truck. He was then rushed to a local hospital.
As of this report, there is no word on his condition.
