Driver Dies in Solo-Car Crash on Shadow Mountain Road in Helendale
HELENDALE, CA (July 10, 2019) – A Barstow man died in a solo-vehicle rollover crash on Shadow Mountain Road, near Highway 395 Sunday evening.
According to officials, the unidentified male died around 7:00 p.m., after his 2000 Mercury Mountaineer SUV overturned and later ejected him out of the cabin.
Reports say he was driving west when he allowed the car to drift to the north shoulder for unknown reasons. Subsequently, the Mercury traveled to the east and westbound lanes before colliding with a dirt berm. As a result, the Mercury then overturned and ejected the driver.
The 56-year-old man has yet to be identified by the coroner’s office. Reports also indicate that he was not wearing a seat belt at the time of the accident.
At this time, the California Highway Patrol office is investigating this case and urging witnesses to come forward.
