Our service men and women spend so much time in the line of fire. When they finally get home, to the United States, they feel as though they are safe. But for Brett Jones, that proves to be a false sense of security. He was killed when the vehicle in which he was riding rear-ended a big rig in the middle of the night.
It is reported that the big rig was merging onto the highway when the car merged onto the on-ramp, maintaining a speed of at least 65 MPH. At this high speed, it hit the back of the big rig. It was then hit by a Toyota Corolla.
Officers took this opportunity to remind citizens of the importance of wearing a seat-belt. They point out that it is likely that Mr. Jones was not buckled in.
The driver, Alexandra Jiminez, was later hospitalized and then arrested, charged with gross vehicular manslaughter. Further, authorities suggest that he was under the influence of alcohol, which impaired his judgment and probably caused him to travel on the onramp at 65 MPH. This reckless act was what caused the accident and the death of Jones.
Fortunately, authorities report that nobody else was harmed. The driver of the big rig and the Toyota Corolla did not sustain any injuries.
