According to the California Highway Patrol, a 2003 Toyota Tundra, driven by a man and a 20-year-old male passenger, collided with a 2022 Ente Entegra motorhome driven by a 51-year-old man from Indio.

The Toyota reportedly drove right into the path of the Ente, where its right side collided with the left front of the Ente.

As a result of the crash impact, both vehicles traveled up an ascending dirt embankment and came to rest against a concrete storage facility building.

Officials said all parties involved in the mishap were trapped in their vehicles and were extricated by the first responders.

Sadly, the 76-year-old woman, who was a passenger in the Ente, was taken to Barstow Community Hospital, where she succumbed to her injuries at the hospital.

A 23-year-old person was transported to Loma Linda University Medical Center for moderate injuries, and the remaining passengers of the Ente were transported to BCH with minor injuries. They were all in the Ente.

The driver and the passenger of the Toyota sustained major injuries and were both taken to Arrowhead Regional Medical Center in Colton for treatment.

Drugs or alcohol were not suspected of having played a role in the accident.

An investigation into the accident is underway.
