Man Killed in Rollover Crash; Two Injured

BARSTOW, Calif. (Feb. 16, 2024) — A 65-year-old Buena Park man died and two others were injured in a two-vehicle crash on the Interstate 15 freeway near Barstow.

The collision occurred at around 12:47 p.m. on February 14, 2024, near milepost marker 15 SBD 113.00, according to a California Highway Patrol (CHP) Barstow Area report.

The man was traveling with a 49-year-old female passenger southbound on the freeway in a 2002 GMC Sierra, just north of Afton Canyon Road, according to Victor Valley News Group.

Meanwhile, a 22-year-old man driving a 2020 Chevrolet Equinox was also traveling south in the No. 1 lane in front of the GMC Sierra.

Investigators reported the GMC driver attempted to pass the Chevrolet and allegedly moved into the median and then tried to merge back into the No. 1 lane. That’s when the two vehicles collided and the driver in the GMC reportedly lost control of his vehicle.
