Interstate 8 reopens after overnight investigation

Posted: Updated:

ALPINE (CBS 8) - Eastbound Interstate 8 was reopened Tuesday after CHP conducted an overnight investigation in a crash that took the lives of Angela August and Jimmy Arevalo back in June.

Authorities say, back in June just before 3 a.m., Angela August lost control of her car, went up an embankment, overturned, then rolled back onto the highway.

A short time later, Jimmy Arevalo either crashed into her, or pulled over to help.

That's when Sunny Hall plowed into them. She was arrested on suspicion of DUI, but never charged.

Monday night, the CHP closed the Eastbound lanes of Interstate 8 where the crash took place. They say the goal was to conduct a sight distance analysis.

News 8 spoke with Angela's mother in regards to this next step in the investigation.
