4X Fatal SR125 At Mission Gorge Rd 08/29/09
A Very Tragic 4 Person Fatal Accident. Please don't quote me but this is to the best of my knowledge what happened. CHP dispatch received a call from one of the occupants that the accelerator was stuck and the vehicle was still accelerating. The phone connection was then lost. The vehicle clipped the rear end of another and then crossed Mission Gorge Rd hitting a berm then going airborne and burst into flames. The speed was estimated by witnesses as being in excess of 100 MPH when the car left the end of the freeway. One of the occupants turned out to be a 20 year veteran of the CHP. The other occupants were his wife, daughter and brother-in-law. The Car turned out to be a Lexus service loaner. At this point no one knows why or if there was time to take evasive action to stop the out of control car. I do not know at this point who was driving the Lexus. I was called well after the accident to get footage for a local TV station.
