NIPTON, Ca. – Two male passengers, one from Las Vegas and the other, from Fontana, lost their lives in a 15 freeway collision on Sunday night.
At around 11:39 p.m. a 25-year-old Las Vegas woman was driving a 2005 Chevrolet Silverado truck, northbound on the 15 freeway, north of Halloran Summit Road, in the fast lane. As she drove at an unknown rate of speed. Inside the vehicle there were three other passengers, a Las Vegas woman, 20, a Las Vegas man, 23, and a Fontana man, 29. At some point, the driver allowed the vehicle to drift left where it entered the dirt center divider. The driver turned right, in an attempt to re-enter the roadway. The Silverado re-entered the lane, but overturned multiple times as a result of the sudden turn back onto the roadway.
The Siverado came to a rest in the dirt center divider, on its roof, CHP officials said. Both male passengers sustained major injuries and died as a result of the collision. Both women complained of neck and back pain and were transported to the University Medical Center in Las Vegas
