Yeah, it did. I was on the opposite side going South. I saw when the helicopters were coming down and I knew it had to be bad. I recorded a portion of it as I passed. It did look like a very bad accident and my heart goes out to those who lost a loved one and I also hope no one else lost their life. Does anyone know if the other person they were giving CPR to die?

I was there too, the vehicle was going northbound toward vegas, not southbound.

we were headed southbound and had just gotten there after the accident while the bodies were still in the road before the emergency personnel arrived at all. too bad people were not wearing their seatbelts, especially the child.

I also saw the end of the accident and have been trying to find the story anywhere in the CA/NV newspapers..no luck...Can anyone help? The license plate on the van was a NV and had a tinkerbell sticker I think on the back, so I being a teacher was worried it could be a student from Vegas. Any answers out there?

I was the fourth car or so on the accident scene, N I-15 between Barstown & Baker on Sunday Feb 18. Six people were in the van. It appears a set of grandparents, parents & two children. Three were thrown from the van during the crash and attended to in the roadway while the three pulled from the car were walked to the side of the road and sat down for care (seatbelts?). The family is in our prayers.
