The incident began when Samuel Sabedra, 25, of Sylmar, failed to stop behind Michael Towne, 62, of Simi Valley, in heavy traffic, according to a California Highway Patrol press release.
Sabedra’s Dodge Avenger collided with the rear-end of Towne’s Nissan Rogue. Then, Sabedra tried to move onto the center median after the collision, crossing into Knight’s path.
