ADELANTO, Calif. (VVNG.com) — Two people were killed and a third person was airlifted after a fiery head-on traffic collision Friday night in Adelanto.
It happened at about 8:15 p.m., on October 13, 2023, on US Highway 395, between Air Expressway and Rancho Road.
The collision involved a 2014 Chevy Malibu and a second unknown-type vehicle. Emergency responders arrived on scene and found the mangled vehicles along the southbound shoulder of US-395 with one of the vehicles on fire.
