Tow Truck Driver Struck and Killed by Big Rig on I-10

A tow truck driver was struck and killed by a big rig on I-10 Tuesday morning. Officials identified the victim as Jon Israel of Cabazon. The truck accident occurred around 9 a.m. in the westbound lanes, about two miles east of Main Street.

The California Highway Patrol (CHP) says Israel pulled over along the north side of the freeway and exited the truck for unknown reasons. He was getting back into the truck when an oncoming big rig drifted to the right shoulder and struck him. Israel was thrown from the vehicle and into the roadway. Another motorist stopped to pull the victim out of the road. Authorities pronounced Israel dead at the scene.

The big rig driver stopped to cooperate with the investigation, which remains active. The CHP have ruled out drugs or alcohol as factors. No arrests have been made in connection with the crash.
