Collision in Baker

A fatal accident occurred in the northbound lanes of Interstate 15 in Baker, resulting in one fatality and critical injuries to another individual, according to the California Highway Patrol. The accident occurred at the Baker Boulevard exit, approximately at 1:05 PM. Initial reports indicated that a tour bus was struck by a white Dodge Ram pickup truck. It was reported that two lanes were blocked as authorities handled the scene. Debris scattered across the highway forced passing vehicles to use the right shoulder, causing significant traffic disruptions. CHP confirmed that upon arrival, officers found a person from the Dodge Ram unresponsive. Despite efforts to provide life-saving measures, the person was pronounced dead at the scene, confirmed Shane Hernandez, Public Information Officer for the California Highway Patrol - Barstow Area. Meanwhile, a second victim who suffered critical injuries required urgent medical attention. Two helicopters were called to transport the injured party, but they ultimately declined due to adverse weather conditions. Consequently, a ground ambulance quickly transported the individual to a Las Vegas hospital for treatment. The identities of the parties involved have not yet been revealed, and the investigation into the specific circumstances of this fatal collision is ongoing. Motorists who witnessed the incident or have any information are encouraged to contact the CHP. Traffic on I-15 experienced considerable delays as cleanup and investigation efforts took place during the afternoon, and motorists were advised to seek alternate routes when possible.
