CAJON PASS:(VVNG.com)- On September 29, 2014 at approximately 8:47 a.m., a two vehicle traffic collision shut down a state route 138, just west of the 15 freeway for several hours.
According to authorities, Mr. James Rouse Parsons a 22-year-old male from Banning was driving a 2011 Subaru Impreza eastbound on SR-138, just west of I-15, at approximately 65 mph. Ms. Jamie Marissa Madden a 33-year-old female from Rancho Cucamonga was driving a 2007 Mercedes-Benz and was traveling west on SR-138, west of I-15 at approximately 60 mph.
Mr. Rouse attempted to pass traffic ahead by crossing over the double yellow lines, which separate the eastbound and westbound lanes. This forced the driver of the Mercedes-Benz to swerve to the right in an attempt to avoid a collision. As the driver of the Mercedes turned, the left front end of both vehicles collided with one another causing catastrophic damage to both vehicles.
Emergency medical personnel responded and requested an airship that landed on the highway to transport the male driver of the Subaru who sustained major injuries and was taken to Loma Linda Medical Center. The Driver of the Mercedes and two young children sustained minor to moderate injuries and all taken to Arrowhead Regional Medical Center via ground ambulance.
No other vehicles were involved in this collision. This collision is still under investigation.
