NB 15 Freeway Temporarily Halted Due to Crash

VICTORVILLE, CA:(VVNG.com)– Traffic on the northbound 15 freeway was temporarily halted due to a traffic collision Friday afternoon.

At 11:43 a.m. CHP officers responded to a traffic collision just north of the Nisqualli Road onramp.

According to CHP Officer Rob Grieve, a 2011 red Cadillac CTS driven by a female was traveling in the no. 2 lane. A big rig ahead signaled to change lanes from the no. 2 lane to the no. 3 lane. The Cadillac slowed down to approximately 50 mph to allow the semi to change lanes.

Meanwhile, a Chevy Suburban came up and was unable to slow down and struck the Cadillac from behind. The Cadillac went to the right side of the roadway. The Suburban went to the left and up over the guardrail that separates the NB and SB lanes.

“The collision involved minor injuries with the complaint of pain but nobody was transported,” stated Grieves.

At about 12:45 p.m. CHP conducted a traffic break to allow the tow truck to remove the vehicle.
