2-Vehicle Crash on I-10 Freeway
CABAZON, Calif. (March 16, 2023) — A fatal 3-vehicle car accident happened Thursday morning on the eastbound Interstate 10 Freeway in Cabazon near Whitewater.
The multi-vehicle collision occurred about 8:48 a.m. on March 16th, just west of Haugen Lehmann Way, according to a California Highway Patrol dispatch.
The drivers of a Toyota Sienna, a Ford F-680 construction vehicle and a Nissan were involved.
One of the vehicles went off the roadway during the collision. The initial crash involved the driver in the white Toyota hitting the left rear quarter panel of the other vehicle.
Apparently, the driver in the Ford had slowed down to enter a construction area in the center median when the Toyota crashed into the back of the Ford, according to the Desert Sun. Upon impact, the Toyota also crashed into a Nissan traveling on the right side of the van.
The 34-year-old Yucca Valley man driving the Toyota died following the crash. Additionally, the 47-year-old Victorville man from the Ford and the 37-year-old Desert Hot Springs woman driving the Nissan, did not report any immediate injuries, police said.
The Nissan had minor damage and the Ford had rear-end damage.
Meanwhile, tow trucks removed at least one of the damaged vehicles from the freeway.
Investigators are working on the case to determine fault.
