October 8, 2012 (Alpine) – A three-mile stretch of Interstate 8 will be closed tonight for a continuing investigation into a fatal crash on June 11 that killed two people.  All eastbound lanes will be closed between Dunbar Lane/Harbison Canyon Road and Tavern Road from 11 p.m. tonight until 4 a.m. tomorrow, according to the California Highway Patrol.

Drivers on eastbound I-8 will be detoured onto Old Highway 80/Alpine Boulevard at Dunbar Lane/Harbison Canyon Road, and then back onto I-8.

On June 11, University of California San Diego student Angela August, an Alpine resident, and Jimmy Arevalo were struck and killed, allegedly by a car driven by 30-year-old Sunny Hall. The CHP will be testing lighting conditions to see how far a driver can see at night and provide that information to the San Diego County District Attorney's Office, 10 News reports.
