On April 6, 2019, at approximately 4:26 PM, Sgt. Steve Licon, I.D. 13348, from the CHP Riverside Area office, was on a traffic stop behind a Chrysler sedan, southbound on I-15, north of Nichols Road. A gray Toyota Corolla was traveling on the right shoulder of southbound I-15 and collided into the CHP motorcycle, Sergeant Licon, and the Chrysler. Sergeant Licon suffered major injuries and was transported to Inland Valley Medical Center in Riverside, where he later succumbed to his injuries. The driver, who was the solo occupant in the Toyota, suffered minor injuries, and the four occupants of the Chrysler sedan were uninjured. The driver of the Toyota was arrested for multiple charges, including suspicion of driving under the influence.
When a California Highway Patrol officer noticed a driver who appeared unresponsive drifting into oncoming traffic in Corte Madera on Thursday, she pulled open the door of the moving vehicle and slammed on the brakes, preventing a possible head-on collision, authorities said.
