Highway Fatal Collision on US Route 95 near Needles Reported

A severe collision involving a semi-truck and a pickup truck claimed at least one life and left a child seriously injured on March 15, 2024. The incident occurred on the Needles Freeway, commonly known as Highway 40, near the junction with US Route 95, close to the California-Arizona border. Emergency services responded to the scene shortly after the accident was reported at approximately 9:20 a.m.

According to initial reports from the California Highway Patrol, the semi-truck was involved in a T-bone collision with a dark gray Nissan Titan pickup truck under circumstances that are still being investigated. The impact was significant enough to cause major front-end damage to the semi-truck and heavy damage to the Nissan.

The violent nature of the collision necessitated an emergency response that included airlifting an injured child to a hospital for urgent medical care. The current condition of the child is unknown, but the injuries were severe enough to warrant immediate transportation from the crash site.

The California Department of Transportation took swift measures to manage the aftermath of the accident by closing the East Broadway Street off-ramp to ensure the safety of rescue operations and facilitate the removal of the wrecked vehicles. Tow trucks were dispatched to the scene to clear the roadway, which had been obstructed by the damaged trucks.
