ADELANTO-(  Southbound Highway 395 was shut down between Cactus Road and Mojave Drive for a short time while deputies investigated a three vehicle traffic collision Monday evening. The collision on Highway 395 near Cactus Road was reported at around 7:35 p.m.

A deputy from the Victor Valley station responded to the collision and began to interview the drivers of the vehicles. One of the drivers, 26-year-old Adelanto resident Daniel Ojeda was determined to be under the influence of alcohol.
