Henry Wheeler Obituary, Death –
Henry Wheeler, 72 years old, was found to have passed away, according to the San Bernardino County Coroner’s Office. Henry was a resident of Apple Valley. After a deadly car accident that occurred on Sunday afternoon, authorities decided to close the intersection of Apple Valley Road and Tuscola Road.
At approximately one o’clock in the afternoon on April 16, 2023, a white SUV slammed into the traffic signal light located at the southeast corner for reasons that are still being investigated. The SUV sustained significant damage as a result of the collision, and the light was knocked to the ground as a consequence.
The big metal pole tore through the SUV’s engine compartment while it was traveling through the vehicle. VVNG was informed by officials from the sheriff’s office that the driver had sideswiped another vehicle before crashing into the traffic light pole. Apple Valley Fire Department firefighters who went to the area verified that one person was declared dead at the scene where the incident occurred.
It is still unknown how long the roadway will be expected to be blocked due to the incident. The inquiry is still underway, and this post will be updated with any new information as soon as it’s made available.
