INCIDENT: Major Injury Collision

LOCATION: Amargosa Rd./Maricopa Rd., Victorville

SUMMARY:
On Thursday, January 17, 2019 at approximately 4:02 p.m., deputies from the Victorville Station and rescue personnel from the San Bernardino County Fire Department and American Medical Response responded to a two-vehicle traffic collision on Amargosa Road south of Maricopa Road, in the city of Victorville. Upon arrival deputies determined that a white 2017 Nissan Sentra was traveling north on Amargosa Road and a gray 2006 Infiniti sedan was traveling south on Amargosa Road. The roadway was wet due to rain earlier that afternoon. For unknown reasons, the driver of the Nissan lost control while navigating the curve in the roadway and crossed the double yellow lines colliding with the Infiniti causing major damage to both vehicles.

The driver and three passengers of the Nissan suffered major injuries and were transported by ground ambulance to a local trauma center for treatment. The driver of the Infiniti suffered minor injuries and was treated at the scene.

Investigators are continuing the investigation into the cause of the collision. Amargosa Road was closed in both directions from Luna Road to Dos Palmas Road for several hours while investigators processed the scene for evidence and interviewed witnesses.

Anyone with information or anyone who may have witnessed the collision is asked to contact Deputy A. Ramos or Deputy C. Dekeyrel at the Victorville Police Station.
