At around 12:30 p.m. on Friday, October 21, 2016, 31-year-old Hesperia resident, Steven Saucedo left a gray or silver colored SUV on the 15 freeway before jumping to his death landing in the fast lane of the westbound 10 freeway traffic. Traffic was shut down for approximately two hours to give the coroner time to respond and to investigate the incident.
Saucedo was pronounced dead at the scene. Saucedo, who was described as a kind man, leaves behind a wife, children, and other friends and family members who will miss him dearly. “His words of encouragement helped many of us that were fortunate enough to know him,” said Ale Villa on the Go Fund Me page. “I will miss him dearly and pray that his wife and kids find comfort in the memories he left them with and the love he had for them in his heart.”
The brother-in-law of Saucedo has set up a Go Fund Me account to assist in the costs associated with his death. ‘My niece and nephews didn’t get to say goodbye to their father that day, so my sister, myself and our family want to make sure we can give them the chance to say goodbye to their wonderful father,” said Michael Rams on the Go Fund Me page.
This was the second death of its kind in the same general area. Victorville resident, Carol Pulice, an Apple Valley High School counselor jumped off the 15 freeway south overpass to her death landing on the dirt shoulder of the 10 freeway eastbound on Tuesday, September 13, 2016.
