An accident that occurred Sunday night around 9:30 p.m. on I-15 near Gopher Canyon Road resulted in the death of an 11-year old white male who lived with his family in a home in San Bernardino County according to the county Medical Examier’s office.
On Sunday evening the unidentified boy was a passenger in the rear seat of his family’s SUV in the northbound lanes of I-15 approaching Gopher Canyon Road.
Their vehicle was then struck from behind by a faster moving vehicle, which caused the SUV to rollover. The decedent was ejected from the vehicle and came to rest in the center divider. 9-1-1 was called and when first responders arrived, his death was confirmed without medical intervention due to obvious signs of trauma.
