Red Light Runner causes Accident near Chamberlaine Way, One Pronounced Dead

ADELANTO, CA (September 1, 2022) – On Sunday afternoon, a car crash on Highway 395 claimed the life of Enrique Meza.

The fatal accident happened around 1:19 p.m. at the intersection of US Highway 395 and Chamberlaine Way, according to the police.

Furthermore, according to the report, a northbound white Toyota Tacoma driven by 18-year-old Apolinar Lopez ran past a red light on Highway 395.

Lopez was then broadsided by a silver 2018 Chevrolet Malibu going eastbound on Chamberlaine Way.

Eventually, emergency personnel arrived at the scene and transported the Malibu driver to a local hospital where he succumbed to his injuries. He was later identified as 33-year-old Enrique Meza of Adelanto.
