One person is dead and two more suffered major injuries after a head-on collision Sunday night.
The fatal accident shut down Highway 58 near Tehachapi late Sunday night into Monday morning. Just before midnight, Barstow police officers attempted to pull a vehicle over when the driver fled from Barstow toward Tehachapi. According the Mojave CHP, the driver drove through the city of Tehachapi and back on to the 58 traveling westbound in the eastbound lanes. That’s when the head-on collision occurred. One adult female passenger was pronounced deceased and the two drivers were taken to the hospital with major injuries. Highway 58 near Broome Road has since reopened.
