ADELANTO – A 25-year-old New Jersey man died after being involved in a fiery crash with a big rig on Palmdale Road in the City of Adelanto on Thursday morning. At around 9:08 a.m. Muataz Abdelatif was driving a charcoal gray Nissan sedan eastbound on Palmdale Road, west of CA-395.
For reasons that remain under investigation, Abdelatif crossed the double yellow line and struck a westbound traveling semi-truck head on. The driver of the semi-truck, a 60-year-old Hesperia man was able to get out of the vehicle, which shortly after burst into flames. Abdelatif was extricated from his mangled vehicle with major head trauma.
Abdelatif was transported to Victor Valley Global Medical Center where, despite life-saving efforts, he was pronounced dead in the emergency room. The driver of the semi-truck was airlifted to Arrowhead Regional Medical Center for the treatment of moderate injuries.
