Beaumont, CA (April 01, 2022) On Friday afternoon, a fatal crash on Interstate 10 left a North Carolina man dead and a truck driver injured.
According to the California Highway Patrol (CHP), the fatal collision happened around 12:33 p.m. east of Beaumont Avenue.

Reports say that the North Carolina man was driving a 2015 Kia on I-10’s number 4 lane.
