Why Did Driver Crash Into Sign on 15 Freeway?

A man sustained serious injuries after he crashed into a sign on northbound I-15 last month. The driver of a Dodge pickup truck was traveling north on the 15 freeway near Cleghorn Road when he lost control of the vehicle. The truck overturned and crashed into a steel sign off the side of the freeway.

California Highway Patrol (CHP) officers responded to the scene around 5:13 a.m. Authorities found the overturned truck partially wrapped around the sign. Firefighters extricated the driver from the truck. He was then transported to the hospital with undisclosed injuries.

The No. 4 lane of I-15 was closed from just north of Cleghorn Road to State Route 138 while firefighters freed the victim from the vehicle. It is unclear what caused the driver to crash into the sign.

“Unfortunately, this looks like another case of a driver losing control—meaning distraction, speeding or other driver error was likely involved,” said Attorney Walter Clark, founder of Walter Clark Legal Group.
