On 3/1/2015, a Newhall man was killed during a hit and run accident in San Diego County.  The victim was Stephen Chavez, 24, who was walking across the southbound lanes of Interstate 5.  The accident took place about 20 minutes after 11:00 p.m. when a white truck hit Chavez and continued to drive on.  As a result of trying to avoid the collision, four other cars crashed into one another.  

It is not known as to why Chavez was attempting to cross Interstate 5; however, a rest stop very close by may have been where he was headed.  Anyone who has information about this crash is urged to contact California Highway Patrol.
