CAJON PASS – A 43-year-old Victorville man was burned to death following a collision on Tuesday afternoon.
At around 12:51 p.m. the California Highway Patrol (CHP) responded to the report of a 1995 Honda Civic stalled in the northbound #4 lanes of the I-15 just north of SR-138 in the Cajon Pass. Moments later, at around 12:56 p.m. the CHP received another call reporting a traffic collision involving the same car, which caught on fire as soon as it was struck from behind.
Other motorists pulled over and attempted to rescue the man from the engulfed vehicle, but were unable to. The man was pronounced dead at the scene when paramedics arrived. The coroner collected the remains of the man, who will be scientifically identified to verify his suspected identity and once the family is notified his name will be released.
The collision remains under the investigation of the CHP.For late-breaking news, follow 24/7 Headline News on our Los Angeles County Facebook group, Riverside County Facebook group, Coachella Valley News group, US News group, Victor Valley/Inland Empire Facebook group.
