According to CHP officer Angel Arceo, Inderbitzen was driving south on the highway at about 100 miles per hour when the car swerved off the road and slammed into a tree at about 3:25 a.m. on Tuesday. Arceo said the investigation is still ongoing and the cause of the crash is still unknown.
Arceo noted the car was a 1995 Nissan Pathfinder, was stolen from Manteca. After the crash, someone noticed the SUV was stolen and alerted police. The car suffered major damage and was impounded for evidence, Arceo said.
Inderbitzen, who did not wear a seat belt, was pronounced dead at the scene, according to the California Highway Patrol. Arceo said it’s unknown if alcohol or drugs were involved in the crash, and the CHP must wait to find out until the toxicology report’s results arrive in another two or three weeks.
No other vehicles were involved in the collision, according to the CHP, and no one else was in the car with Inderbitzen.
