One person was hospitalized after a two-vehicle rollover accident on Interstate 15 on Tuesday, February 28, 2023.
The California Highway Patrol and San Bernardino Fire Department received calls about a collision at around 1:24 p.m. on the northbound I-15 just before the Cleghorn Road exit.
The CHP traffic log listed the involved vehicle as a white GMC Yukon that had sustained significant front-end damage and had rolled onto its roof.
A white Honda HR-V with minor front-end damage was the second car. The two right lanes were blocked by both vehicles.
Both vehicles were upside down when rescue crews arrived. Rescue workers asked for one ambulance to be sent to the scene.
One person who had non-life-threatening injuries was transported. After roughly 30 minutes, all lanes were reopened.
At one point, traffic was backed up all the way to the Kenwood Ave exit.
The Inland Office of the California Highway Patrol will be looking into this incident.

What Should I Do After an Accident?
It is essential to report a car crash to the proper authorities immediately. It’s crucial to be as factual as possible and avoid forming any assumptions while answering questions from the police or the insurer. Victims often feel obligated to apologize, even when they did nothing wrong. The insurer might cite such behavior as grounds for a claim denial.
