Livermore, California – Carlos Alberto Garcia, 12, of Manteca died following a Livermore big rig accident on Interstate 580 Monday afternoon, according to the Alameda County coroner’s bureau. 

A semi-truck collided with a Chevrolet Tahoe just before 1:20 p.m. September 21, in the westbound lanes near the Airway Boulevard off ramp.

The Tahoe was heading west on Interstate 580 when it collided with the big rig.

The impact caused the Tahoe to flip multiple times. Carlos and another child in the Tahoe were ejected during the crash.

Carlos was pronounced deceased at the scene while the other child was taken to a hospital with major injuries.

The operator of the big rig was uninjured.

The cause of the wreck is under investigation.
