CHP Reports on Crash

Sadly a twenty-two year old young man died after a head on crash. According to the CHP reports, this happened just west of Kerman on a Saturday night.

According to California Highway Patrol (CHP) Sgt. James Del Carlo, the man was driving a Ford Mustang on Highway 180. This was around 6:30 in the evening when he sped up to pass a vehicle. CHP said that he had collided head on with a Chevy Tahoe. The Tahoe was driven by a sixty-five year old man, there was also a passenger in the vehicle.

Both driver of the Tahoe and his passenger had to be taken to Community Regional Medical Center for their major injuries. The passengers age has not been released at this time.

The highway had to be closed while crews cleaned the wreckage.

Usually when you think of a police arriving to the scene of an accident they are there to help. However, sometimes, on accident that isn't always the case. According to the police a bus driver that was helping at an accident in California was sadly struck by a highway patrol car.

The CHP say that the vehicle was flipped over on the eastbound Interstate 80. According to the reports, the charter bus was blocking traffic when a CHP officer arrived to the scene on Saturday night. The officer was backing up his patrol car to close a traffic lane and then accidentally hit the bus driver. The bus driver was trying to help by placing a reflective triangle on the roadway. Sadly, the bus driver had to be taken to the hospital where he passed away due to his injuries.

CHP are still investigating the crash.
According to San Bernardino County Coroner's office, twenty-two year old Andrew Medina was sadly killed in a car crash on Sunday. The crash happened just after 1 p.m. The Upland police and paramedics were called to the crash scene which was at Benson Avenue and Mountain Shadow Drive. According to the reports Medina lost control of his Dodge and then wrecked into a block wall.

Medina was sadly pronounced dead at the scene of the crash.

Police have been investigating the crash and have figured out that Medina was travelling north on Benson Avenue at a pretty high speed. This is when he lost control of his vehicle which sent him into the southbound lanes. The doge then hit the block wall.

Police had to shut down a part of Benson Avenue so that they could continue searching the scene. Benson was reportedly going to be closed from 16th Street to Mountain Shadow Drive from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. Our thoughts go out to his family.
