Coroner ID’s two 18-year-olds killed in rollover crash near I-15 freeway in Apple Valley

APPLE VALLEY, Calif. (VVNG.com) — The San Bernardino County Coroner’s Office identified the two people killed in a traffic accident near the I-15 freeway as Albert Flores, 18, a resident of Colton, and Zaira Y. Aviles, 18, also a resident of Colton.

On March 6, 2024, at about 7:16 am, the California Highway Patrol dispatch received a call of a solo vehicle roll-over crash, on the northbound I-15, north of Dale Evans Parkway in Apple Valley.

According to the California Highway Patrol, the investigation revealed the driver of a 2023 Kia Forte was traveling northbound at a high rate of speed when the driver failed to maintain lane positions and allowed the Kia to deviate to the right of the freeway.

The Kia traveled into the open desert terrain where the Kia became airborne on the uneven dirt surface and overturned several times.

As a result of these impacts, the unrestrained driver and passenger were fully ejected from the Kia and sustained fatal injuries.

Victorville City Fire Department personnel and American Medical Response personnel responded to the scene and pronounced the driver and passenger deceased at the scene.

This traffic crash occurred during the hours of darkness. This investigation will be handled to its conclusion by the CHP Victorville area.
