Nadia Alatorre-McNeal Killed in El Cajon Pedestrian Accident on Interstate 8 near First Street

El Cajon, California – Nadia Eden Alatorre-McNeal has been identified as the 19-year-old Chico woman killed in an El Cajon crash that occurred early Tuesday morning, according to the San Diego County Medical Examiner’s Office.

At around 2:50 a.m. March 2, CHP said McNeal was driving a 2003 Toyota Matrix eastbound on I-8 when she lost control and slammed into the center divider west of North First Street.

The Toyota became disabled in a traffic lane on I-8. McNeal then got out of the vehicle and stood besides it.

Shortly after, the Toyota and McNeal were hit by a 2002 Infiniti G35 coupe driven by a 24-year-old San Diego man.

The force of the crash sent McNeal flying into the left lane of the eastbound lanes and she was hit by two other vehicles.

McNeal was pronounced deceased at the scene.

The driver of the Infiniti suffered major injuries and was taken to Sharp Memorial Hospital in San Diego.

All eastbound lanes of I-8 were closed as authorities investigated the incident.

The accident is under investigation.

We have numerous other 6-figure settlements within 30 days. While these results are atypical and do not predict future outcomes, justice in these cases helped bring about closure and a swift sense of justice for the families.”
