An 81-year old man pedestrian was killed after he was hit by a vehicle and trapped under it after a chain-reaction crash on Monday afternoon, September 30, 2019, in Chula Vista, CA. The collision happened at approximately 1:10 pm on Fourth Avenue and Shasta Street, a block south of H Street. The driver of a Chevrolet work truck was reportedly speeding and constantly changing lanes, when the truck collided into a parked Chevrolet Silverado pickup, which then crashed into a second parked vehicle and the pedestrian. The work truck ended up being on its side in the driveway of a home on Fourth Avenue.
