PHOENIX - The Department of Public Safety has released the names of the family involved in a deadly accident on Interstate 17 on Monday.
According to DPS officer Carrick Cook, the driver of the pickup truck has been identified as 49-year-old Richard Galaska. He is in the hospital recovering from injuries he suffered in the crash.
Galaska had his two sons in the truck with him -- 13-year-old Cole Galaska died at the scene, while 11-year-old Aiden Galaska survived and is being treated at a local hospital.
DPS officials said Galaska was driving from Rock Springs to his family's Gilbert home when his pickup drifted into the shoulder near Jomax Road.
The pickup struck the semi, which was pulled over along the highway because of a flat tire.
After the pickup hit the big rig, authorities say a tow truck driving south on the I-17 hit the truck.
Authorities are still investigating what caused the pickup to drift into the shoulder of the roadway.
