Driver Critically Injured as SUV Rolls Over on I-15 in Hesperia

HESPERIA, Calif. (VVNG.com) – One person suffered critical injuries on the I-15 freeway in Hesperia after a severe single-vehicle accident on Thursday afternoon.

The incident, which occurred at approximately 5:11 PM southbound on I-15, just above Ranchero Road, involved a Cadillac Escalade that flipped and rolled multiple times, resulting in the driver being ejected and subsequently trapped underneath the vehicle.

Authorities from the California Highway Patrol (CHP) reported that the rollover forced the SUV across the lanes from the median to the freeway’s right side and then back, eventually coming to rest upright.

Due to the accident, the second and third lanes of the freeway were impeded.

Despite the circumstances, the trapped individual was able to communicate while pinned under the SUV, as indicated in the CHP’s incident logs.

Within minutes of the crash at 5:24 PM, CHP issued an order to shut down all lanes to facilitate the arrival of emergency services at the accident site.

The victim was subsequently extricated and transported to Hesperia Airport, from where they were airlifted to a trauma center for further medical treatment.

As of the latest updates, the specific cause of the accident is still under investigation, and the current condition of the injured driver has not been updated.
