Stockton Accident Fatally Injures Good Samaritan — Recently, a pedestrian accident in northwest Stockton claimed the life of a Good Samaritan. The collision occurred shortly after 2:00 in the morning along Interstate 5 in the vicinity of Benjamin Holt Drive. A man driving northbound along Interstate 5 witnessed a severe chain reaction accident and pulled over to help those involved. As the man was checking up on everyone, he became a part of the crash scene himself and was struck by an oncoming big rig. Medical personnel responding to the scene transported the man to a hospital for treatment. Sadly, the man was unable to overcome his injuries and passed away during hospitalization. Officials have identified the victim as 38-year-old David Macias of Lodi.
My sincere thoughts and condolences are with those who are mourning the loss of their loved one after this tragic accident.
