In Memory of Riley Eric Hein

My son Riley Eric Hein was killed on November 13, 2015 by a semi truck without an underride guard.  He was 16 and driving to High School.  The accident occurred on West Bound I-40 near Carnuel, New Mexico.  Please add Riley’s name to your map.

Eric Hein

ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. — The person killed in a fiery crash that closed I-40 Friday morning is Manzano High School junior Riley Hein, school officials confirmed Monday.

Bernalillo County Sheriff’s Office deputies were called to westbound I-40 near the Tijeras exit around 6:30 a.m. for a crash between a car and a semi-trailer. Authorities closed westbound lanes of traffic all morning while they investigated.

Sheriff’s Office spokesman Aaron Williamson said a passenger car and a semi-trailer that were both driving on westbound I-40 collided with one another at a curve, and the passenger car got trapped underneath the semi.

The semi dragged the car for a quarter mile, and when authorities arrived, the truck was on fire. The driver of the passenger car, whom school officials identified as Hein, was pronounced dead at the scene of the crash. Manzano student identified as person killed in I-40 crash

In Memory of David Cabrales

A 20-year-old man who was on his way to work died Tuesday when his car slammed into an illegally parked semi-truck in Chula Vista, police said.

Witnesses told officers the truck driver has parked in the bike lane along Eastlake Parkway before — to walk to a nearby Jack-in-the-Box restaurant for food.

Investigators were listing the illegal parking as a primary cause of the crash, but they also were looking into why the Hyundai sedan driver didn’t stop or change lanes before hitting the truck trailer.

He was identified by family members as David Cabrales, of Chula Vista.

“He will forever be remembered for his contagious smile, kind heart, and his ability to light up any room,” his cousin Patricia Bez wrote on a GoFundMe page set up to raise funds for his funeral. Driver dies in crash into back of semi-trailer in Chula Vista
