Two Dead after Semi-Truck Collision near Gun Club Road

BUTTONWILLOW, CA (October 10, 2022) – Wednesday morning, Lovepreet Dhillon and Anthony Campos were involved in a fatal big-rig crash.

The incident happened around 5:47 a.m., near Gun Club Road on October 5th.

Per reports, Dhillon was driving a 2022 Freightliner east when he crossed over the yellow line into the westbound lanes. There, he collided head-on with a westbound 2010 Freightliner driven by Campos.

The 2010 Freightliner then came to a stop in the westbound lanes. Meanwhile, Dhillon’s Freightliner spun out of control across the westbound lanes and struck a passing 2003 Toyota that veered right in attempt to avoid a collision.

Upon impact, the Toyota was pushed backwards before overturning. Meanwhile, Dhillon’s vehicle continued east before overturning onto its right side, and on top of the Toyota.

Medics arrived and pronounced the two occupants inside the Toyota dead at the scene.

Crews have not released the conditions of 32-year-old Dhillon, of Bakersfield and 33-year-old Campos, of Wasco.

Following preliminary duties, officers determined that drugs or alcohol did not play a role. In addition, all parties were wearing their seat belts at the time.
