Less than five hours later another accident occurred in almost the same spot. According to the coroner, Barbara Langlois, 63, was hit and killed either in late 1 or 2 of Interstate 15 at Palmdale Road. Officers were already in route to the area after receiving a report of a woman standing in the median near the onramp. According to witnesses who stopped at the scene, the driver took off without even checking on Barbara. Other witnesses say they believe that three different vehicles struck the woman before officers arrived on the scene, but none of the drivers stopped at the scene of the accident. The California Highway Patrol shut down the lanes where the accident occurred, but they reopened them later. The police continue to investigate the accident.
If you are involved in an accident, then remember to stay at the scene if there are injuries until authorities arrive. If you leave the scene, you are making it harder on yourself because penalties increase drastically.
