Fatal Pedestrian Crash on 215 Freeway at Palm Avenue
SAN BERNARDINO, CA (June 30, 2020) – A man and a woman were killed in a pedestrian crash Tuesday evening last week in San Bernardino, CHP officials said.
The crash happened around 11:45 p.m. on 215 Freeway, just south of Palm Avenue.
According to the California Highway Patrol, two pedestrians were standing outside two parked vehicles along the right shoulder of the freeway. At the same time, a 2013 white Ford E350 box truck was traveling south on the freeway.
For unknown reasons, the driver of the Ford allowed it to travel to the right shoulder. The front of the Ford collided into the rear of a disabled 1997 Beige Toyota Camry and subsequently struck the two pedestrians.
As a result, both pedestrians, a 54-year-old man and a 50-year-old woman, both Perris residents, died at the scene. The coroner’s office did not release their identities pending next of kin notification.
At this time, authorities did not rule out alcohol or drugs as a factor in the crash.
CHP officials are still investigating the incident. They asked anyone with further information to contact Officer J. Izydorek at the San Bernardino CHP Office at (909) 383-4247.
