Apple Valley, CA (July 26, 2019) – A driver was tragically killed and a passenger was severely injured in a traffic collision Thursday afternoon. The devastating accident occurred at 2:11 p.m. on Interstate 15, south of Stoddard Wells Road in Bell Mountain.
Reports claim that a semi-tractor trailer was parked on the right shoulder due to mechanical issues when a Charcoal Gray Dodge Ram slammed into the back of the semi-tractor trailer.

A female passenger in the Dodge was extricated from the wreckage and airlifted to Arrowhead Regional Medical Center with critical injuries.
