Semi-Truck Carrying Construction Materials Overturns on I-15

victorville semi truck accident

VICTORVILLE, CA (March 26, 2024)A semi-truck, laden with bags of Chemstar Type S Lime powder, overturned on the southbound 15 freeway in Victorville on the morning of March 25, causing significant traffic disruptions. The incident occurred at approximately 8:25 a.m., just south of Bear Valley Road, within the Victorville city limits.


According to CHP Officer officials, the driver of the tractor-trailer lost control for unknown reasons, veered onto the shoulder, and consequently overturned into a drainage ditch beside the freeway. Emergency personnel responded to the scene, finding the semi-truck in a state that confirmed a rollover had taken place.


The impact of the Victorville semi-truck accident on the flow of traffic was immediate, with the California Highway Patrol closing the #3 lane to allow for the safe removal of the truck and its cargo. Officials indicated that the vehicle was transporting construction materials, predicting a cleanup operation that could extend between 4 to 6 hours.


Despite the potential for hazards, there was no immediate danger to the roadway, as the bulk of the debris from the truck’s load was confined to the right shoulder. The driver of the semi-truck, an adult male, miraculously sustained no injuries from the accident.


A SigAlert was issued at 9:47 a.m. for the no.3 lane, expected to last approximately four hours, as recovery efforts continued. The circumstances leading to the accident are still under investigation to determine the exact cause of the driver’s loss of control.
