A 79-year old man of Montclair was killed in an accident on the 40 Freeway near Barstow recently. The man was a passenger in an SUV when a tire lost tread making the automobile swerve off the road, causing it to roll numerous times. There were five other people in the vehicle, all injured.
It is unclear why the driver lost control or what happened to the tire. The accident is under investigation. My thoughts and prayers are with the man's family at this time.
