BARSTOW, CA (October 21, 2021) – A 24-year-old man died tragically Thursday morning following a semi truck collision on Interstate 15.
The fatal collision occurred just after 5:00 a.m. on Interstate 15, about 30 miles north of Barstow.
According to the CHP, the 24-year-old man and two other men were driving on Interstate 15 in a 2022 Kia when they attempted to overtake a semi-truck on the right side of the road. The Kia collided with another semi-truck stopped on the shoulder for unknown reasons.
The 24-year-old male was thrown out the back window and landed on Interstate 15 as a result of the accident. He was then hit by the semi-truck that they were attempting to pass.
Responding officers declared the 24-year-old man dead at the scene. Meanwhile, medics took the other two men to Barstow Community Hospital with minor injuries.
