Multiple Vehicles Involved in Highway 395 Crash



imageKRAMER JUNCTION:( On Wednesday, March 30, 2016, at approximately 5:35 AM., the Barstow Dispatch Center received a 911 call of a collision involving multiple vehicles on Highway 395, south of State Route 58 (SR-58).

According to the California Highway Patrol, A 30-year-old male driver, traveling northbound on US 395, in a 2012 Ford F-150 turned to the left crossing illegally over a solid yellow line into southbound traffic to pass another vehicle. As the driver moved into the southbound lane, he observed a 2011 Peterbilt truck tractor, hauling two produce trailers, traveling southbound in front of him. The driver of the F-150 turned to the left traveling onto the west dirt shoulder and turned back to the right reinterring the southbound lane.

As the F-150 reinterred the southbound lane, it collided with both of the Peterbilt trailers and the rearmost trailer broke apart causing debris to enter the northbound lane.

As a result of debris entering the northbound lane, a 2005 Nissan Pathfinder, a 2012 Ford F450, and a 2007 Toyota Corolla collided with the trailer debris as they were traveling in the northbound lane.

The driver of the Toyota Corolla, a 21-year-old male, and a 3-month-old infant passenger from the Nissan Pathfinder sustained minor injuries and were transported to Barstow Community Hospital by Hall ambulance. Drugs and alcohol are not a suspected factor in this collision.

This collision is still under investigation by the California Highway Patrol, Barstow Area.
