A man died this morning on Interstate 15 in Temecula when he drifted onto the shoulder and struck the back of a stopped tractor trailer, The Press-Enterprise reports. The 34-year-old victim had been driving a vacuum truck and a witness told authorities that the vehicle was weaving before it slammed into the semi at 7:30 a.m. on March 30, 2012.
Officer Nathan Baer, a spokesman for the Temecula-area California Highway Patrol, said Donnie Miller, the driver of the big-rig, was stopped on the shoulder of the Winchester Road exit from southbound Interstate 15, according to The Press-Enterprise. The big-rig driver was calling his dispatch center for directions. Officer Baer said the vacuum truck was traveling at roughly 40 miles per hour at the time it hit the big-rig.
