1 Killed, 1 Critically Injured in Cabazon Crash on Interstate 10 Near Main Street

CABAZON, CA (April 19, 2022) – A big rig crash killed one person and critically injured another on the Interstate 10 near Main Street in Cabazon.

According to the KESQ News and NBC Palm Springs, the tragic accident took place early Tuesday. Officers reported the wreck shortly before 2 a.m.

The incident began when a Toyota Tundra was going east on the Interstate 10 in Cabazon. For an unknown reason, the pickup truck veered off the road.

The car then slammed into a series of sand-filled barricades on the right shoulder. The vehicle rolled over and came to a rest on the freeway without its lights on, just west of the Main Street off-ramp.

Car and Big Rig Collide

The California Highway Patrol said a Kenworth big rig hauling a shipping container approached and collided with the Toyota. Both became fully engulfed in flames in the process.

Firefighters along with the paramedics arrived and pronounced the male driver of the Tacoma dead at the scene. The 63-year-old Arizona man operating the semi-truck jumped from the burning tractor.

He sustained life-threatening injuries as a result of the collision. Medical personnel rushed him to the Desert Regional Medical Center in critical condition.

The names of the deceased and wounded parties have not been yet released. Meanwhile, CHP forced the eastbound lanes of the Interstate 10 to shut down for several hours near Main Street following the wreck.

The cause of the fatal Cabazon crash is still under investigation.
