A man was killed in a high speed rollover accident on Interstate 15 after driving over his wife after an argument Monday night in Cajon Pass.
According to the Victorville Daily Press, 34-year-old Kenneth Amaya Jr. of Hesperia began his fateful night with an argument with his wife along the side of the road when his frustration led him to get into his GMC Yukon SUV and drive off, but not before driving her over.
Witnesses to the scene immediately called the police, but by the time responding officers arrived, Amaya was long gone from the scene. His wife was quickly airlifted to a nearby hospital for treatment, where she is listed in critical condition.
About an hour after his ordeal with his wife, according to the California Highway Patrol, Amaya made his way onto Interstate 15 where he was traveling at a high rate of speed before losing control of his vehicle.
His vehicle veered sharply to the right of the freeway and smashed into a metal guardrail, then continued through the barrier and rolled down the side of a steep embankment.
Amaya was not wearing a seatbelt at the time of the accident, and was therefore thrown from the vehicle during its tumbling journey. When authorities made their way to this second incident sight, Amaya was found dead.
Thankfully there were no other vehicles involved in the high speed crash, and police closed down multiple lanes of I-15 to clean up the debris that was strewn across the roadway and to recover the downed SUV and Amaya himself.
It goes without saying that driving over someone after an argument is never an acceptable thing, but so too is driving at high speeds in such a condition. When under heavy stress, your ability to make proper decisions is limited, and dangerous accidents like this can easily be the result.
