FOX40 has traced the ownership of a big rig involved in a deadly collision Thursday on I-80 in Davis.

Mendoza Distributing offered no comment when approached by a reporter with the Fox affiliate in Fresno. The small company is based out of a home, and its owner did not return multiple calls by FOX40.

The driver of the big rig has not been identified. He continues to recover at UC Davis Medical Center in Sacramento. Two people were killed in the crash after the driver of the truck reportedly began choking on a sandwich he was eating and passed out.

Raley’s released a statement Thursday making it clear the grocery store chain was not involved in the crash. The truck was once owned by Raley’s but was later sold. An old logo was revealed in the charred remains of the truck.
