Teen Airlifted after Victorville Rollover Crash on Village Drive
VICTORVILLE, CA (November 18, 2019) — Two people sustained injuries in a rollover crash on Village Drive Saturday afternoon in Victorville.
The incident occurred at about 4:22 p.m. near Vasquez Avenue. It involved a white van and a black Nissan Altima.
A witness told authorities that she noticed the white van pulled over to the right. However, it was not all the way over. As the witness passed the van, she said she saw it making a U-turn in her rearview. And then, she saw the black car flipping. The van reportedly stopped for a few seconds but it eventually sped away.
A man was able to exit the Nissan before emergency crews arrived. First responders transported him to a hospital as a precaution.
Meantime, firefighters had to extricate a 17-year-old male from the Nissan. Emergency crews airlifted him to a trauma center with unknown injuries.
Reports indicated that another witness followed the white van into Adelanto until the deputies made contact with the driver. However, it was not immediately known whether the driver received a citation.
