Driver Airlifted from Semi Truck Crash in Adelanto

A driver was airlifted from the scene of a semi truck crash in Adelanto Saturday night. The truck accident occurred around 7 p.m. at the intersection of Highway 395 and Air Expressway.

Officials say a 2015 Freightliner was traveling north on Highway 395, while a Saturn Ion was heading west on Air Expressway. Both vehicles entered the intersection, and the Freightliner T-boned the Saturn. It appears the semi truck driver may have run a red light.

The 65-year-old driver of the Saturn was trapped inside the vehicle until firefighter arrived and extricated him. He was then airlifted to Loma Linda University Medical Center for major injuries. The cause of the crash is still under investigation, and anyone with information can contact the Victor Valley Sheriff’s Station at (760) 552-6800.
