According to the California Highway Patrol (CHP), a Toyota truck traveling eastbound on the freeway inexplicably rolled over on its side, marking the beginning of a chain of events leading to the tragic fatality. A 36-year-old Patterson man, driving a big rig, witnessed the overturned truck and halted his journey to render assistance in extracting the Toyota driver from the vehicle.

As the Good Samaritan commenced his walk back to his big rig, tragedy struck once again. A 23-year-old Modesto resident, behind the wheel of a red Kia sedan and traveling at approximately 65-70 mph, collided with the Patterson man. The driver of the Kia, reportedly focused on two vehicles pulled over, remained oblivious to both the overturned truck and the man walking back to his big rig.
