Identify Woman 27 Killed by Truck; Apparent Suicide

A woman who threw herself in front of a gasoline tank truck on the Golden state Freeway near Los Feliz Blvd. on Sunday was identified yesterday as Jackie McKenzie, 27, of 541 Sparks St., Burbank.

The driver of the truck, Max Goshert, 60, told police that the victim ran into the right lane of the southbound freeway and was struck by the right fender of his tanker.

Police asked for an autopsy to determine the exact cause of death.

According to reports, the woman, in apparent suicide attempts, repeatedly dashed in front of cars in the freeway before the truck hit her. Other motorists were able to avoid her, officials said. Goshert reportedly told police the woman appeared to run into the path of his truck when he swerved to avoid her.
