Preliminary reports indicate Medina’s Freightliner tractor-trailer crashed into a Mazda 6 and a Mazda 3, forcing both vehicles into the median. The 18-wheeler then hit a Nissan 350Z before rolling over onto its right sight and coming to rest in the median.
The 350Z was forced into Chevrolet Traverse, which was pushed into a Chevrolet Silverado.
Medina, who was not wearing a seatbelt, was pronounced dead at the scene, according to the police. The operators of the vehicles included in the accidents were taken to various hospitals.
