Per scanner traffic, two people were listed in critical condition and transported by ground ambulance to an unknown hospital.

This was the second reported multi-vehicle crash on the 15 Freeway Friday afternoon in Hesperia, with the first crash occurring in the bypass lane near Ranchero Road, according to a previous VVNG article.

An earlier issued advisory warned that travel could be difficult, especially for high-profile vehicles, since rain and fog, in addition to the wind, will create a hazard for New Year’s Eve travel, however, that advisory is for Saturday.
