Watch Out for Vehicles Stopped on the Highway

cars driving safely on highwayAuthorities report that a teenager was killed when his car was struck by another vehicle. The teen from Raleigh, Eddie Urieta-Yariez, 19, had pulled over to the side of the road on westbound I-40.

According to reports, Urieta-Yanez was driving a 1996 Toyota car and had parked on the roadside. At approximately 3:42 a.m., a commercial box truck was merging onto I-40 west when it failed to slow down. The truck slammed into the smaller car, virtually running it over. The truck came to a stop about 150 yards west of the location of the crash.

It is unclear why Urieta-Yanez had stopped his car at the end of the on-ramp, and whether or not he had his hazard lights activated has not been reported. What is known is that the car’s driver was killed at the scene and the truck’s driver has not yet been charged in the incident. It is unknown whether or not he will be.
