Covina man dies in San Bernardino head-on collision

SAN BERNARDINO — A Covina man died and three other people were injured Saturday in a head-on car crash in San Bernardino blamed on street racing, authorities said.
Christian Hansen Gunn, 57, died at the scene of the crash, which occurred about 11:40 p.m. on State Route 18, just north of Old Waterman Canyon Road, San Bernardino County coroner’s officials said in a written statement.
Gunn was a passenger in a 2002 Nissan Sentra that had been traveling north on State Route 18, San Bernardino police officials said in a written statement.
A 2005 Dodge Neon heading north was traveling in the southbound lane at 11:40 a.m. when it struck the Nissan, police said.
Police say the driver of the Dodge was street racing and caused the collision, but released no further details.
The Nissan’s driver and two people in the Dodge were taken to a hospital with minor injuries.
The driver of a Honda Pilot tried to avoid the wreckage but also struck the Nissan, though no one inside the Honda was hurt, police said.

    The driver of the Dodge Neon had better be Thanking God for his LIFE, knowing he killed an INNOCENT person and hurt many others. My heart and prayers go to the Gunn Family. I hope the driver will get life in prison so he can sit in there realizing what he did to take an innocent persons life. He took Gunns’ life, the driver doesn’t deserve to live a life.

    the driver of the Dodge Neon is put in jail for life for taking an innocent mans’ life and hurting many others. He does NOT derserve a life outside of prison. He should NOT be given another chance to kill or hurt anyone else. In jail he can’t make any decisions to getting behind the wheel of a vehicle. Doesn’t matter if he apologizes for what he did, it doesn’t bring Mr. Gunn back. Make him pay for this.

    Chris was a good friend who always had a smile on his face. He had retired just a day earlier after many long faithful years of service where he worked for Swiss Dairy Los Angeles. Against the nature of his death, Chris came up with the company’s safety motto and just a few months earlier won a safety incentive certificate.This senseless act has left a man unable to experience the joy of his family & his friends & reap the rewards of his hard work. This is truely a sad tradgedy. May you Rest in Peace Chris.

    My condolences to Mr. Gunn’s family and his friends. i hope the wrong-way driver receive heavy punishment for his negligence that resulted to someone else’s demise. it’s one thing that the Dodge driver was racing then he adds wrong-way driving in his offense.
