Michael Keyser Fatal Apple Valley Semi-Truck Crash 15 Freeway

Overturned Big Rig Truck Hit by Semi-Truck on 15 Freeway in Apple Valley

 APPLE VALLEY: 2 Killed Semi-Truck Crash 15 Freeway, Hodge Road APPLE VALLEY, Calif. (Jan. 23, 2020) — Michael Robert Keyser, 49, of Hesperia, was killed Sunday morning after he came to the aid of a truck driver who had crashed on the Interstate 15 Freeway in Apple Valley.

Keyser was among two people killed when a second truck crashed into the first truck near Hodge Road.

The two collisions were reported on Sunday, Jan. 19th, according to Victor Valley News.

Police say that Keyser was driving his 2015 Mazda 3 when he came upon the crash scene. He pulled over and stopped on the left side of northbound 15 Freeway.  That’s when he got out of his vehicle and walked across the southbound lanes to help the truck driver who was in an overturned big rig.

Next, a second semi-tractor trailer truck crashed into the first truck and killed both Keyser and the truck driver.

The impact of the second collision caused the vehicles to become engulfed in flames.

San Bernardino County Firefighters responed to find both truck cabs completely destroyed.  Paramedics rushed the second truck driver to Loma Linda University Medical Center. A second person turned down offers of treatment at the scene.

Unfortunately, both Keyser and the first truck driver died at the scene. The California Highway Patrol closed down all southbound I-15 Freeway lanes for several hours.

The CHP’s Victorville station is heading up the investigation into liability for the crash.
