Investigators with the Los Angeles County Coroner’s Office have identified the Sun Valley man killed last week after his big rig jack-knifed on Interstate 5 near Pyramid Lake.

The driver was identified as 53-year-old Bradley Dwayne Flack.

Flack died Thursday when his 2003 Freightliner truck rolled on its right side, sparking a fire that engulfed the truck, according to California Highway Patrol Sgt. Jim Mair.

“His death was accidental,” Lt. Fred Corral said Monday. “He died from the combined effect of blunt force traumatic injuries.”

According to Mair, Flack took evasive action when the driver of a 2002 Lincoln Town Car swerved abruptly toward the track while traveling about 65 mph. The Town Car nearly collided with the big rig, he said.

The driver of the Town Car, who suffered minor injuries, has been identified as 25-year-old Davonte T. Carr of San Jose. No one was arrested in the crash.

An investigation into the truck crash will continue.

The last thing this truck driver did was try to make sure he did hit this car. If he had not swerved the car driver could have died and the truck driver would most likely lived. I hope the car driver understands what a sacrafice this driver made.

I hope you provided this info to the CHP, they could probably use all the witnesses they could find.

Baddog1: Where did I say I saw it? I read the story above that said
"Flack took evasive action when the driver of a 2002 Lincoln Town Car swerved abruptly toward the truck while traveling about 65 mph".

In my first post I meant to say that the truck driver tried to make sure he
did NOT hit the car.

My apologies Unreal, your detailed prediction made it sound like you were there.
