GERBER, CA (March 6, 2018) – A 21-year-old man was killed in a car accident with a big rig on Interstate 5 between Red Bluff and Corning, early Tuesday morning.
 
The unidentified Redding man was driving northbound on the I-5 in a 2017 Jeep near Elder Creek, when he swerved off the road to the left west side and hit a guardrail. The vehicle bounced back into the highway and stopped, according to the California Highway Patrol.
 
A northbound 2013 Freightliner big rig, driven by 25-year-old Roman Duscoy of North Highlands, was traveling at speeds of 65 mph and was unable to stop in time, crashing into the left side of the stopped Jeep.
