Elderly Man Killed, 2 Others Hospitalized following Victorville Crash
VICTORVILLE, CA (May 14, 2019) – A 2-vehicle crash at Mojave Drive and Amargosa Road killed an elderly man Monday afternoon. The crash occurred at the intersection of Mojave Drive and Amargosa Road at around 1:46 p.m. It involved two dark-colored vehicles – a compact Ford SUV and a 2000 Honda Accord.
A driver said the Ford was northbound in the far left lane of Amargosa Road but then turned left onto Mojave Drive. Witnesses said that the turn made the Ford collide with the Honda that was southbound on Amargosa Road. The collision caused major damage to both vehicles.
The 83-year-old man in the Honda was talking at first, according to a witness. However, the man was going in and out of consciousness and didn’t look too good.
Paramedics transported the elderly man to Victor Valley Global Medical Center. He was pronounced dead at the said hospital. Meanwhile, taken to a local hospital as a precaution were the male driver of the Ford and his passenger. Emergency responders had to extricate a female passenger from the Ford.
The crash caused the closure of Amargosa Road at Mojave Drive for approximately three hours. Authorities suggested the use of alternate routes.
The police ask anyone with information about the crash to contact Deputy J. Dean or Deputy A. Ramos at the Victorville Police Department at (760) 241-2911 or the Sheriff’s Dispatch at (760) 956-5001.
