Reckless Driver Causes Fatal Car Crash on Interstate-805

Posted on

The family involved in a fatal car crash reaches out to find the woman responsible for the tragedy. According to the California Highway Patrol, the Thomas family was on its way to Disneyland, April 25, when the deadly accident occurred.

According to witnesses, the driver of a silver sedan with Arizona license plates was driving recklessly on Interstate 805. The driver of the sedan reportedly cut off a car, causing it to swerve in front of the Thomas’ SUV. The SUV flipped and rolled 100 feet, barely stopping above a 30-foot drop.

Luckily, according to reports, the car crashed at a construction site, and the construction workers used a forklift to keep the SUV from falling down the 30-foot drop.

Becky Thomas, who was driving during the car accident, told Fox News that the construction workers are her “angels.”

“Maybe they don’t want to be called heroes,” said Thomas, “But they’re angels to me.”

Thomas, her husband, their son, and another relative in the car were injured in the crash, but all survived. Thomas’s mother-in-law, Laura Hall, 65, died in the crash.

“She was so excited,” Thomas said, “She was with all her grandchildren, the first time they went to Disneyland. And now, my son doesn’t get to share that moment with his grandmother.”

The family is setting up a fund in honor of Laura Hall. According to Fox News, the construction workers will be honored by the San Diego Fire Department.
