Major Accident Closes Highway 395 For Several Hours

VICTORVILLE, Calif. (VVNG) A major traffic collision involving a tractor-trailer and an SUV forced authorities to close down a portion of Highway 395 Friday.

The accident was reported around 11:30 a.m. on Highway 395 between Bear Valley Road and Dos Palmas.

“According to witnesses the SUV was traveling northbound and may have lost control for an unknown reason, ended up sliding sideways and into the front of that semi,” stated Deputy Jeff Dean with the San Bernardino County Sheriffs Department Victorville Station.

The female driver of the silver Toyota Sequoia was the only person in the SUV and required extrication. The driver of the semitrailer was not injured.

An airship was requested for the driver of the vehicle but was canceled at noon time. Instead, the patient was transferred to Desert Valley Medical Center with life-threatening injuries.

The roadway is expected to remain closed for several hours while authorities investigate the accident.
