38-Year-Old Riverside Man Pronounced Dead after Multi-Vehicle Collision near Valley of Falls Drive

SAN BERNARDINO COUNTY, CA (March 20, 2024) – Saturday afternoon, Douglas Grant Jr. was killed in a head-on accident on Highway 38.

The incident occurred around 12:35 p.m., on the northbound lanes of the freeway just south of Valley of the Fall Drive.

Investigators say the driver of a northbound 2022 Chevrolet attempted to pass a Toyota pickup-truck while traveling over 45 mph.

The Chevy then crossed the broken yellow lines and collided head-on with a 2013 International 4400 fire truck crew carrier that was traveling at about 55 mph. Upon impact, the fire-truck lost control and slammed into the Toyota in the oncoming lane. 

Despite their injuries, the crew inside the fire-truck assisted the other parties involved. Due to the extent of his condition, 38-year-old Grant Jr., of Riverside succumbed to his injuries at the scene.

Paramedics also transported nine firefighters from the US Forest Service to a nearby hospital for further treatment.
