    One person was killed when a vehicle collided with a tractor trailer truck in Vista.

    San Diego County sheriff’s deputies responded to the collision at 1215 Park Center Drive, less than two miles from the scene of another fatal crash that occurred just last week.

    In this incident, a sedan was crushed under the rear of a parked tractor trailer.

    Firefighters used chainsaws to remove the driver from the wreckage but the person was pronounced dead at the scene.

    Accident is causing problems for employees who work in this business area.

    Police say there were skid marks and the car is so far underneath the trailer that it appears speed may have been a factor but they won't have confirmation of that until after the investigation is complete.
