1 Dead & 2 Airlifted in a Multi-Car Accident in Baker, CA
August 25, 2022

San Bernardino County, California (Baker, CA) – On August 23, 2022, two helicopters touched down on the northbound I-15 freeway to transport two seriously wounded individuals from a fatal crash on Afton Road.

A 26-foot box truck, a semi-truck with a trailer, and a Ford 350 pickup truck hauling a 22-foot gooseneck trailer were engaged in the collision, which occurred around 12:08 p.m. Emergency crews revealed that three individuals were stuck with severe injuries, one of whom was semi-conscious. A fourth patient sustained minor injuries.

Firefighters requested three helicopters to react and land at the location, but one of the helicopters was canceled when one of the victims died due to their injuries and was declared dead on the spot. Both lanes of the I-15 are closed, and drivers are utilizing the shoulder to avoid the accident. While the helicopters landed and transferred the injured to trauma centers, traffic was temporarily halted. Mercy Air 66 and Mercy Air 22 flew two of the victims to Sunrise Hospital in Las Vegas, where they were treated for unidentified injuries. The semi-truck combination was packed with frozen food, with the front of the trailer split. The gooseneck trailer was full of chalkboards. A second white pickup truck engaged was drivable and did not necessitate the use of a tow truck.

This is a developing story, and more details will be added as they become accessible.
