A dust storm in the Southern California desert has caused a massive highway pileup that left 28 people with minor injuries.
The San Bernardino County Sheriff’s Department says only three of the people had to be taken to an emergency room for treatment. The California Highway Patrol says wind-whipped dust blinded drivers around 3:30 p.m. Monday on Highway 18 near Rabbit Springs Road, in Lucerne Valley. The CHP says at least 15 vehicles, including two big-rig trucks, were involved in the Mojave Desert crash.
