Truck Driver Found Dead in Cajon Pass

A truck driver was found unresponsive in a rig stopped along I-5 in Tejon Pass. Kern County firefighters pronounced him dead, according to the California Highway Patrol’s online incident log.
It was not immediately known if the death was weather-related.
ABC7 in Los Angeles reported Friday morning that hundreds of travelers were stranded for hours at the Cajon Pass in the Mojave Desert as a result of snowy conditions.
This is the second big snowstorm to hit Southern California since November. A Thanksgiving storm dropped the heaviest November snowfall (four feet) on Big Bear in more than 50 years.
