Passenger Killed in Single-Vehicle Crash Near Newberry Springs

A driver was killed in a single-vehicle crash on I-40 early Sunday morning. Police say the driver of a 2016 Chevrolet Camaro was traveling west on I-40 east of National Trails Highway when she drifted into the dirt median. The Camaro hit a dirt berm, then became airborne and landed on its roof.

The single-vehicle crash happened around 1:45 a.m. near Newberry Springs. The driver, a 27-year-old female, was taken to Loma Linda University Medical Center with unknown injuries. Her 25-year-old male passenger was taken to Barstow Community Hospital, where he later died from his injuries.

The Barstow California Highway Patrol (CHP) is investigating the crash. At this time, alcohol does not appear to have contributed to the incident.

“Driving on these roads after dark requires that drivers stay alert at all times. Drowsy driving or allowing even the slightest distraction can be deadly,” said Attorney Walter Clark, founder of Walter Clark Legal Group.
