On July 16, 2022, at approximately 1304 hours, a 23 year old male was driving his 2020 Hyundai Sonata with a female passenger in the right front seat, northbound on US-395, south of S. Haiwee Canyon Road on the Dunmovin grade, in the #2 lane, at approximately 65 mph. While traveling northbound, the Hyundai was approaching the rear of a slow moving Freightliner tractor-trailer combination that was also traveling in the #2 lane. As the Hyundai approached the rear of the Freightliner, the Hyundai failed to reduce its speed or maneuver around the Freightliner and collided into the rear trailer of the Freightliner. Both the driver and passenger of the Hyundai sustained fatal injuries as a result of the collision. The driver of the Freightliner was uninjured. The collision is currently under investigation by Bishop Area CHP (Lone Pine Resident Post).
