Cabrera was driving eastbound when he lost control of his vehicle, struck a concrete barrier on the west side of the highway, skidded across the main lanes and struck a concrete divider, officers said.

A 2018 Chevrolet Silverado pickup truck then struck his Explorer. The driver of the Silverado was hospitalized with non-life threatening injuries.

A witness told police that Cabrera may have lost control after a Toyota RAV4 possibly cut the Explorer off.

No criminal charges are pending and alcohol is not a factor.
