Survivor of Deadly Suspected DUI Crash That Sent His Truck Flying Thankful for Life
A week after a woman was killed and a truck was hit so hard it flew off the 15 Freeway and into a parking garage during a crash caused by a suspected DUI driver in Temecula, the driver of that truck is finally out of the hospital and talking about the crash that severely injured him.
Mike Rivera, the crash victim, repeats, “How did I make it out? How did I make it out?”
Every time Rivera sees this horrific crash that was all caught on dashcam video, he wonders how he made it out alive. The 38-year-old construction worker was driving to San Diego when the impact of the crash sent Rivera’s white truck flying off Interstate-15, slamming into a parking garage.
“I remember waking up in the truck, trapped in between the steering wheel and the back of the truck,” Rivera recalls, saying the entire event was a blur.
“I took off my seat belt,” Rivera says. “I think I tried to stand up. That was the last thing I remember.”
