LUCERNE VALLEY, CA (April 9, 2021) — One man died in a head-on accident on Highway 247 near Selmadolph Street Wednesday night.
According to the California Highway Patrol, the fatal crash happened around 7:10 p.m. For reasons that require more investigation, a 40-year-old Carson man traveling southbound veered into the northbound lane. As a result, the 2002 Chevy pickup truck collided head-on with a northbound 2020 Peterbilt.
