fatal semi-truck accident

Palmdale, CA (August 22, 2018) – 37-year-old Casey Owens was identified as the man who lost his life in a fatal semi-truck accident in Palmdale. The accident took place on August 20.

Police officials were initially called to the scene on 47th Street to find that a Toyota Corolla and Peterbilt truck collided. The incident took place around 5:45 a.m.

They found that the 37-year-old driver of the big rig was headed northbound at the time and suddenly ran a red light in the area. This caused him to strike the Toyota driven by Casey Owens. The impact of the crash was extremely forceful and caused Owens to die at the scene of the incident.

The driver of the big rig did not receive injuries.
