SAN BERNARDINO COUNTY, CA (September 16, 2019) – Three people were killed and two others were airlifted to the hospital, including a 1-year-old child, in a head-on collision on Interstate 15, just two miles past Cima Road.
The tragic accident occurred just before 12 p.m., when a 2002 Ford Explorer heading northbound suddenly swerved into the center divider before becoming airborne and crashing head-on into a 2011 Isuzu box truck.
The 38-year-old male driver of the Isuzu and his 54-year-old female passenger were pronounced dead at the scene, along with the 25-year-old female passenger of the Ford, who was determined to have not been wearing a seat belt at the time of the crash.
The 31-year-old male driver of the Ford and the 1-year-old child passenger were airlifted to University Medical Center in Las Vegas, Nevada with major injuries.
Police are still investigating what may have caused the fatal collision. Drugs or alcohol do not appear to be factors at this time.
