An SUV got out of control and crossed an obstacle on the Carquinez Bridge in Northern California on Tuesday night, fell more than 200 meters and killed the driver and three passengers.
Dashcam video from another vehicle shows the SUV driving at high speed towards the bridge at Crockett near San Francisco in Interstate 80 before losing control and turning, FOX 2 reported in the Gulf Region. Then he passed over and fell on a parked freight train.
Contra identified the victims of Costa County as 19-year-old Kyle Erickson; Christopher Mata, 21; Cecilia Ayala, 22; and Perla Navarro, 19, who is two months pregnant, according to FOX 2.
“He was always a very loving, friendly and nutritious man,” said Navarro’s mother, Veronica Martinez, said that Navarro has recently graduated from Golden Gate Community School. “I won’t be able to talk to him, see him walk through the door, or hold my grandfather.”
The California Road Patrol is conducting the investigation and said he has not yet known what caused the accident.
“We don’t know if it’s caused by high speed or traffic problems,” said CHP Officer David Harvey.
This is the third time a car passes through the barrier near the bridge, according to FOX 2.
