Memorial for man killed in wrong-way crash

Posted: Updated:

SAN DIEGO (CBS 8) - Family and friends remembered Tuesday the young man who was killed in a head-on collision on Highway 56 last week.

A memorial was held Tuesday at 11 a.m. at Maranatha Chapel in 4S Ranch for 22-year-old Nicholas Hart, who died on Thursday, May 16 when his car was hit by a Land Rover going the wrong way on the freeway.

Hart was a student at Cal State San Marcos and worked at Trader Joe's.

His colleagues described him as a happy, loving individual who was well-liked by everyone around him.

"Everyone on the crew loved him. All of our customers loved him. We've had overwhelming support from the entire region when the news got out," said Jason Hamrick, who worked with Hart.

The driver of the other vehicle, 18-year-old Timothy Barnette, was severely injured in the crash.

The California Highway Patrol is still investigating this case.
