Deadly crash on the East Freeway

The crash involved the victim’s Chevrolet Tahoe, Frias’ Peterbilt semi-truck, and a Kenworth semi-truck.

Police say the Kenworth truck had come to a stop on the freeway due to traffic, and the Tahoe stopped behind it.

The Tahoe may have been attempting to move to another lane and struck the back of the trailer attached to the Kenworth, police say.

According to police, the Peterbilt truck then struck the back of the Tahoe. The woman driving the Tahoe died at the scene.

Police say Frias was evaluated at the scene and determined to be intoxicated. He was arrested.

No other injuries were reported in the crash.
