Through preliminary investigation, it appeared the Toyota Corolla traveled west on Air Expressway Boulevard and attempted to pass a vehicle by merging into oncoming traffic.  The Corolla collided head on with a Chevrolet Silverado followed by a Kia Soul.  The Corolla and the Silverado immediately engulfed into flames.  The impact caused the Soul to roll multiple times and struck a Volkswagen Jetta.  The driver of the Corolla suffered major injuries and despite lifesaving efforts, succumbed to his injuries on scene.  

Investigators from the Victorville Major Accident Investigation Team (MAIT) responded to the scene and assumed the investigation.  Anyone who may have witnessed this collision is urged to contact Deputy Tyler Whitcomb or Sergeant Nicholas Clark at the Victorville Sheriff's Station (760) 241-2911.
