VICTORVILLE, Calif. (VVNG.com) — A semi at the top of the southbound I-15 near the D Street reconstruction work site drove off the freeway and onto D Street.
It happened at about 1:23 pm, on Friday, October 19, 2018, and involved a tractor-trailer transporting four industrial-sized generators.
For reasons still unknown, the semi that was at the top of the I-15 rolled down the dirt slope along the freeway and struck a boom lift with two operators in it on D Street underneath the bridge.
According to County Fire Captain Jeremy Kern, the driver of the semi was not injured and two on-site workers who were on top of a lift were transported to a local hospital with minor injuries.
