Las Vegas Man Dead in Three-Vehicle Collision Near Inyokern

INYOKERN, CA (December 27, 2023) – Wednesday evening, a multi-traffic collision on Highway 14 took the life of Darren Keith Westby.

The fatal collision happened around 8:21 p.m. along SR-14 mile marker 47 near Inyokern. 

According to CHP, a northbound 2016 Ford F-250 veered into the solid yellow lines and hit a 2016 Kenworth truck. Police said the truck was pulling a 2016-enclosed Wabash trailer. 

Following the first crash, the Ford also collided with a 2023 Mazda CX-50 traveling southbound behind the Kenworth.
