A resident has informed me that someone has been throwing concrete cinder blocks onto the Interstate 8 freeway by the Dunbar Exit near Alpine. People are hitting them in the middle of the night and I guess last night was the third incident. The resident’s daughter hit one last night and CHP was called and they said it’s the 8th incident like this.

17 Year Old Granite Hills High School Star Student Athlete Killed in Accident in Alpine

Via CBS8.com (Watch video)

December 11, 2017 – Family and friends of a Granite Hills High School star football player were stunned and mourning Tuesday following his death in a traffic accident while returning from the team’s end-of-season banquet.

William Burton, 17, was killed shortly before 8:30 p.m. Monday, when the westbound vehicle he was riding in collided with an SUV on South Grade Road in Alpine, near the gated community of Rancho Palo Verde, according to school officials and the California Highway Patrol.

The teen died at the scene of the wreck, which left four other people with minor to moderate injuries, the CHP reported.

William was a standout defensive lineman who was recently named to the CIF All-San Diego first team defense. He also led all Eagles receivers and tight ends with 28 catches for 287 yards and four touchdowns.

One of his best performances came during a game against Steele Canyon in September, when he caught two touchdowns, including the game winner with 2.9 seconds left in the contest.

The Granite Hills senior, who also played baseball at the El Cajon campus, is survived by his parents, Bradford and Donna, and brothers, Jake and Zachary.

At the time of the fatal accident, William was riding in the back of a Jeep Wrangler without a rear seat, according to investigators. When the vehicle began to drift off the roadway, the driver, an 18-year-old Crest man whose name has not been released, yanked the steering wheel in the other direction, sending the Jeep veering back across the roadway, into the path of the oncoming Lexus SUV.

The resulting broadside impact ejected William onto the roadway, fatally injuring him, CHP Officer Travis Garrow said.

The driver of the Jeep and a front-seat passenger, a 17-year-old Alpine boy, were both wearing seat belts, Garrow said. Medics took them to Sharp Memorial Hospital in San Diego.

The 51-year-old Alpine resident behind the wheel of the Lexus and his passenger, a 13-year-old girl, were treated for minor injuries at the scene.

Intoxication was not believed to have been a role in the crash, Garrow said. ……Continue reading here
