A 51-year-old Adelanto man was killed in a San Bernardino County truck accident after a big-rig that was hauling hazardous materials rear-ended the victim's car on a Victorville roadway. According to a news report in the Victorville Daily Press, the fatal crash occurred near the intersection of Air Expressway and Phantom East the afternoon of July 30, 2012. Officials say the big rig collided with the sedan a few feet from the intersection's crosswalk.
The truck drove into the back of the car and both vehicles came to rest in the desert field alongside the roadway. The truck was on its way to the Dr. Pepper Snapple Plant and the 1990 Cadillac Deville, according to a news report in The San Bernardino County Sun, was disabled and had its emergency lights on. The driver of the Cadillac was killed and the truck's driver, who was a carrier for Estes Express Lines, reportedly suffered minor injuries.
I offer my deepest condolences to the family members and friends of this deceased truck accident victim. Please keep them in your thoughts and prayers.
