A high-speed collision between a charter bus carrying Tesla employees and a small car left veteran Alameda County (CA) Sheriff's Deputy Sroeuy Khin dead. It happened early Friday on I-580 near Tracy, CA.
Khin, 50, was on his way home after a long overnight shift. It would have been his 51st birthday on Saturday, reports KGO.
"The vehicle was stopped or driving slowly in the number two lane. At the same time, the driver of a white 2016 Temsa touring bus was also driving eastbound 580, east of Grant Line. For reasons still under investigation, the front of the tour bus collided with the rear of the Volkswagen Beetle," CHP Capt. Christopher Sherry said.
The CHP estimates the private charter bus full of Tesla employees was traveling 65 miles per hour when it hit the Beetle, driven by Khin, a 10-year veteran of the sheriff's department.
Khin was pronounced dead at the scene.
The CHP says the bus driver was not under the influence of drugs or alcohol and he and his 51 passengers all escaped major injury.
The deputy, who lived in the Central Valley, leaves behind a wife and four children.
