1 Dead, 3 Injured in I-15 Rollover Crash

One person died and three others suffered injuries in an I-15 rollover crash Wednesday. The accident occurred at 12:51 p.m. on northbound I-15 between Yermo and Baker. According to the California Highway Patrol (CHP) a southbound Lexus SUV experienced a tire tread separation. The driver lost control and the vehicle overturned in the center divider. The Lexus then entered the northbound lanes and struck a Nissan Armada. The crash impact caused the Nissan to overturn as well.

The driver of the Nissan, a 65-year-old woman, died at the scene from her injuries. Firefighters extricated one person from the vehicle who sustained major injuries. An airship transported the victim to a trauma center. The two Lexus occupants sustained minor injuries in the accident. However, neither went to the hospital.

I-15 Rollover Crash Causes Traffic Delays

The crash caused significant traffic delays in both directions of I-15. Police reopened all lanes around 5:30 p.m., and traffic finally began moving smoothly by the evening. The Barstow CHP continues to investigate the fatal I-15 rollover crash.

Another I-15 rollover crash occurred Sunday night in Victorville. The driver of a Honda sedan was traveling north on I-15 between Palmdale Road and Roy Rogers Drive when he struck the center divider. The impact caused the vehicle to roll across several lanes. The driver suffered a head injury in the accident. Emergency responders transported him to a local hospital. The CHP is also investigating this crash.
