Shortly before 3 p.m. on Monday, October 22, 33-year-old Juan Navarro, of Pomona, and 59-year-old Robert McCown, of Big Bear Lake, were killed in a semi crash on Highway 330 near Running Springs. While traveling southbound, Navarro lost control of the semi five miles north of Highland Avenue. When the truck swerved onto the shoulder and up the rock mountainside, Navarro exited the cab; authorities are unsure if he jumped or was thrown. Approximately 400 feet down the road, the semi collided with a 2005 Acura driven by McCown. Both men were pronounced dead at the scene. McCown’s wife, Barbara, sustained minor injuries. Authorities are investigating the accident.
“The official investigation into a fatal accident may take several weeks to complete,” explained California truck accident attorney James Ballidis, “which can be frustrating for members of the victim’s family who are seeking information about the cause of the tragic event.”
Throughout San Bernardino County, traffic collisions claimed the lives of 180 motor vehicle occupants and left another 11,050 injured in 2010, according to the California Highway Patrol’s Statewide Integrated Traffic Records System. Large trucks were involved in 24 of the fatal and 425 of the injury crashes that occurred in the county that year.
All of us at Allen, Flatt, Ballidis, and Leslie would like to offer our condolences to the families of Juan Navarro and Robert McCown, the two men killed in the semi crash on Highway 330 near Running Springs. We would also like to wish a full recovery to Barbara McCown.
