An accident occurred Wednesday afternoon that left one driver dead and several others injured.

The accident took place on a northeast I-820 express lane at around 1:00 p.m. Reports say that the driver of the Corvette had mechanical problems and was travelling at around 20 MPH when the box truck rear-ended the vehicle. The driver of the Corvette, 26-year-old Joe-Aaron Nieto Hernandez, passed away.

Two other individuals were injured in the accident. Detectives investigated the accident and lanes re-opened after 4:00 p.m.

As a car accident attorney, I know how difficult the aftermath of a wreck like this can be. I wish the injured victims and their families a speedy recovery.
