One person is dead after being struck in a four-car crash along the San Bernardino Freeway. Multiple lanes were blocked for several hours while authorities investigated the accident.

The 25-year-old passenger suffered fatal injuries, while the 18-year-old Prius driver was taken to the Queen of the Valley hospital. No other injuries were reported in the crash.
No arrests were made and alcohol or drugs were not suspected factors in the crash.
