Sylvia’s investigation revealed that 53-year-old Dallas Mojica had been northbound in a 2017 Freightliner owned by Prime Inc. with an unloaded box trailer when she lost control on the ice-covered road. High winds in the area had blown snow over the roadway and with the drop-in temperature the road became covered in ice. The tractor trailer went into the southbound lane and struck the snowbank. The tractor and trailer were both severely damaged in the crash and had to be towed from the scene. The operator was only slightly injured and was not transported to any hospital. Traffic on Route 1 was stopped intermittently for the next several hours until sand could be put down on the roadway.
