San Bernardino County, CA: Multi-Vehicle Collision on 215 Freeway in Colton
San Bernardino County, California (April 4, 2018): Authorities are conducting an active investigation into a multi-vehicle crash in Colton, CA, yesterday afternoon, Tuesday, April 3, 2018. Investigators are still gathering information about the crash and few details have been made available at this time.
Officials believe the accident unfolded just before 2:30 p.m. when a black Mercedes collided with a gray Honda Accord and two vans, one yellow and one of unknown color, on 215 Freeway, also known as Riverside Freeway. This reportedly caused a red pickup truck to collide with an unknown vehicle, leading to a third collision involving a Honda Civic and a Kia. At least seven vehicles were ultimately found to have been involved in the crash.
Emergency crews were dispatched to the accident scene immediately after the initial collision but were unable to arrive before the additional collisions took place. The total number of victims and the severity of the injuries sustained have not been revealed. Several ambulances were reportedly needed to assist the injured, and at least one victim is believed to have sustained head injuries, but no additional details have been provided.
