 Fatal Fontana Crash Interstate 10 Freeway, Sierra Avenue

SAN BERNARDINO, Calif. — (August 8, 2023) – A fatal multi-vehicle Fontana crash happened early Tuesday morning on the Interstate 10 Freeway near Sierra Avenue.

The collision occurred around 3:04 a.m. on August 8th, according to the California Highway Patrol.

CHP officials responded to the westbound lanes of the I-10 Freeway and located as many as five motorists who were involved in the collision.

Police reported two of the vehicles involved were a silver 2023 Toyota RAV 4 SUV and a white 2007 BMW 328 sedan. The initial collision involved two of the vehicles that collided and overturned in the HOV lane. A witness who was at a construction site told 911 operators the vehicles were blacked out and difficult to see. Another caller told dispatch operators that their white Mercedes Benz sideswiped the crashed vehicles. Others called to report they almost hit the blacked out vehicles. A total of five vehicles were damaged and or involved in the collision.

Paramedics responded to help those hurt in the crash including at least one who suffered major injuries and later died, the report said.

Meanwhile, tow trucks removed five damaged vehicles from the freeway for evidence. Police also impounded the RAV4 and the BMW 328.

Investigators are working on the case to determine fault. The San Bernardino County Coroner’s office will release the victim’s name after relatives are notified.
