Escondido Car Accident Claims Life

A San Diego man died on Saturday on Del Dios Highway after the truck he was driving cross the yellow line and collided head-on into a cement truck. 33-year-old Jose Alvarez didn’t have a chance; the cement truck was loaded with cement at the time and weighed 25 tons.

The auto accident occurred just before noon, when, police believe, Alvarez crossed over into oncoming traffic when he tried to pass two other vehicles. According to witnesses, the crash was truly head on – “head light to head light.”

While police do not believe that alcohol was involved in the accident, they are still looking for witnesses. Anyone with information is encourage to call the Oceanside CHP office at 760-757-1675.
