Jeff Kloiber Killed in 3-Vehicle Crash on Base Line Street in San Bernardino

San Bernardino, California – A motorist was killed in a crash on Base Line Street near the 215 Freeway in San Bernardino Thursday morning, according to authorities.

The San Bernardino County Coroner’s Office has identified the victim as Jeff Wayne Kloiber, 52, of San Bernardino.

At about 12:53 a.m. July 17, a Chevy Malibu heading east on Base Line failed to stop for a red light and crashed into a Honda Civic and a Chevrolet Silverado that were attempting to turn left onto the freeway.

Kloiber, who was the driver of the Civic, was taken to Loma Linda University Medical Center, where he was pronounced dead at 1:48 a.m. 

The two occupants of the Silverado were taken to a hospital for treatment of their injuries.

The driver of the Malibu, Henry Alfred Duffy, 28, of Adelanto, fled the scene after the crash but later went to the San Bernardino police station and was taken into custody. He was arrested on suspicion of vehicular manslaughter with gross negligence and hit-and-run causing injury or death.

Authorities believe speed and alcohol played a role in the crash.

The investigation is ongoing.

We have numerous other 6-figure settlements within 30 days. While these results are atypical and do not predict future outcomes, justice in these cases helped bring about closure and a swift sense of justice for the families.”
