Head-On Collision on Route 66 Left One Fatality

CAJON PASS, CA (December 9, 2021) – Police are investigating a head-on crash on Route 66 that claimed the life of a woman Monday afternoon.

According to the report, the incident occurred around 2:50 p.m. on Cajon Boulevard, south of Keenbrook Road.

The California Highway Patrol claimed that a driver of a blue Chrysler 200 crossed the double yellow lines into the oncoming traffic.

As a result, a southbound Ford Escape collided head-on with the Chrysler before traveling off the road into ditch.

Meanwhile, the impact sent the Chrysler to strike another vehicle stopped at the northbound lanes due to heavy traffic.

Eventually, the Fire Department personnel responded at the scene and extricated the female driver from inside the Ford.

However, the woman later died at the hospital due to the extent of her injuries.

At this time, the San Bernardino County Coroner’s Office withholds the identity of the deceased woman, pending notification of next of kin.
