1 Killed in Friars Road Collision

NBC 7 San Diego

A 19-year-old driver was killed in a fatal collision with a semi-truck on Friars Road Sunday morning, officials said.

The crash happened just before 8:30 a.m. as the driver and sole occupant of a Honda S2000 – now identified by the Medical Examiner’s officer as Hunter Harris -- was exiting northbound Interstate 15 to westbound Friars Road.

Harris lost control of his Honda and spun out, hitting a large fuel delivery truck that was traveling eastbound on Friars Road, police said. Harris sustained fatal injuries.

The deadly tanker truck collision caused traffic issues on the busy roadway.

A SigAlert was issued for both east and westbound traffic at Friars Road immediately following the accident. Officials said it would remain in effect for at least the next four hours.

As of 9:20 a.m., the on-ramp to northbound I-15 from Friars Road was completely shut down.

The roads were damp and slick Sunday morning due to recent rainfall. Motorists were encouraged to use extra caution while driving.
