Rollover Crash Kills Driver Hit by Cab

A cab driver who was trying to shift lanes at 65mph recently rear-ended an SUV driven by a 65-year-old woman who lost control of the vehicle and died after the rollover crash in Golden Hill.

The woman, identified as Phyllis Lorraine Kirk of San Diego, sustained fatal injuries when her Chevy Blazer flipped over several times before resting on its roof along the southbound lanes of Interstate 5 when it was clipped from behind by the Ford Crown Victoria.

When shifting lanes, motorists should be wary of other driver’s speed in order to avoid collisions that they will be held accountable for.

The cab driver who was trying to go to the No.4 southbound lane from the No.2 lane was questioned but was not arrested as authorities continue to investigate the accident.

Every motorist should keep in mind that they must consider other motorists’ driving behavior so that they would not be involved in any accident.
