Passenger in pickup killed when vehicle goes off I-15 near Bonsall
A 24-year-old man riding in a pickup died early Wednesday when the vehicle went off Interstate 15 near Bonsall and overturned, officials said.
The driver was heading south on I-15, just north of Gopher Canyon Road, in a grey GMC Sierra pickup when, for an unknown reason, he veered off the road around 5:10 a.m., said California Highway Patrol Officer Hunter Gerber.
After going off the freeway, the truck overturned. The passenger, a resident of Moreno Valley, died before he could be taken to a hospital.
The driver of the GMC, a 48-year-old man from Riverside County, did not report any injuries. Investigators said it doesn’t appear that alcohol or drugs were factors in the crash, Gerber said.
Anyone with information about the crash is asked to call CHP investigators at (760) 643-3400.
