A 32-year old San Bernardino man lost control of his vehicle the other morning on Interstate 15 in Hesperia, causing it to drift into the center divider then cross several lanes - it ended up crashing into a big-rig. According to reports, the driver was speeding.
The trucker tried to avoid the collision, but was unable to do so. The impact caused the truck to overturn on the shoulder and roll down an embankment, killing the 66-year old big-rig driver.
According to California Vehicle Code Section 21658(a), "Whenever a roadway has been divided into two or more clearly marked lanes for traffic in one direction the vehicle shall be driven as nearly as practical entirely within a single lane and shall not be moved from the lane until such movement can be made with reasonable safety."
