BAKER, Calif. (VVNG.com) –– An investigation into a fatal crash prompted the California Highway Patrol to close northbound I-15 in the town of Baker for several hours Tuesday.

It happened at 12:33 a.m. on July 19, 2022, near Baker Blvd. offframp, and involved at least three vehicles. According to CHP incident logs, the crash involved a red compact 4-door sedan, a gray SUV and a blue pickup truck.

According to radio traffic, two adults were unconscious and a child was ejected from a child seat.

San Bernardino County Firefighters responded to the scene and confirmed there were a total of 7 patients, three of which were considered emergencies and requested three helicopters to land on the scene.

Unfortunately, two helicopter requests were canceled after two emergency patients were pronounced dead at the scene.

The incident led to the full closure of the northbound lanes at Kelbaker, with traffic diverted onto Baker. The CHP logs reported that the northbound lanes were reopened shortly after 3:00 p.m. Officers remained at the scene with the damaged red sedan while they waited for the San Bernardino County Coroner to arrive.

The Barstow CHP Station is investigating the crash and additional information will be updated as it becomes available.
