Tragic Vehicle Collision Claims Life of 49-Year-Old Driver

NATIONAL CITY, CA (September 22, 2023) – A heart-wrenching collision in a park-and-ride lot resulted in the untimely passing of Gregorio Arreaga on a Sunday afternoon.

The incident unfolded on September 17th, just prior to 5:00 p.m., within the confines of the 2300 block of Sweetwater Road.

According to eyewitness accounts, Gregorio Arreaga, aged 49, was positioned in the bed of a pickup truck parked at a commuter parking lot when another vehicle collided with the truck. The force of the impact propelled Arreaga out of the truck bed, causing him to land beneath another parked vehicle within the lot.
