Fontana Fatality on Interstate 15 Freeway
FONTANA, Calif. (Sept. 27, 2018) — Michael Berg of Covina died in a collision on the 15 Freeway in Fontana Wednesday afternoon, the California Highway Patrol said.
The two-vehicle collision took place about 2:30 p.m. in the southbound lanes, just north of the 210 Freeway. A white 1995 Toyota Corolla sedan reportedly clipped another car, struck a tree, overturned and landed on its roof, the CHP log said. The other vehicle was a 2018 BMW 230i.
The San Bernardino County Coroner’s responded to the scene where Berg was trapped in his vehicle. Despite efforts by arriving paramedics and firefighters, Berg died of his injuries.
