This crash killed one person, but 6 victims were injured seriously enough to be sent to the hospital. The man who died was the driver, and all 6 of the others were passengers in the van. 4 of them were children. Another vehicle (Toyota Yaris) was involved, but nobody in that vehicle was injured.
The accident occurred on Black Friday, November 29, 2013. It was about 4:15 in the afternoon. The location was Sierra Avenue, in Fontana, San Bernardino County, California.
1. Robert Garcia Cardenas was from Fontana and was either 71 or 72 (reports differed).
2. The 6 injured persons were not identified.
3. The people in the Toyota Yaris were not identified.
The Yaris passed the van and then somehow lost control. This caused the van to hit the Yaris, go out of control, and run off the road. After hitting a burm, the van rolled over and came to rest on its roof.
No one has been charged in this case.
