Afton, CA (April 7, 2019) – Yesterday afternoon, April 6th, the California Highway Patrol responded to the scene of a fatal pedestrian crash involving a semi-truck. The accident took place on Interstate 15.

Around 4:38 p.m., a pedestrian who has not yet been identified was struck by a white semi-truck in the southbound lanes of the interstate. Authorities later said that the accident took place between an 18-wheeler truck and a pedestrian.

The truck and the pedestrian ended up in the right-hand shoulder of the freeway following the collision. Paramedics quickly responded to the scene and performed CPR on the pedestrian.
