Woman and Her Dog Killed after Oro Grande Car Crash on National Trails Highway
ORO GRANDE, CA (August 21, 2019) — A woman and her dog died following a violent car crash on National Trails Highway on Monday, August 19.
According to California Highway Patrol, at around 2:49 p.m., officers responded to the car accident on National Trails Highway and Mill Street.
CHP said that a 60-year-old Victorville man drove a 2017 Mack truck/trailer southbound at a stated speed of 55 mph. At the same time, a 69-year-old woman from Helendale drove a red 2016 Chevy Camaro northbound at an unknown high rate of speed.
For unknown reasons, the woman allowed her car to move across the solid double yellow lines. This caused the front of her Camaro to crash into the front left of the Robertson’s cement truck. The Chevy came to a stop after crashing into a dirt berm on the north dirt shoulder of the highway.
CHP officials said that despite life-saving efforts from emergency responder, the driver succumbed to her injuries. The woman’s small dog also died in the car accident.
A small dog kennel was placed outside of the mangled vehicles.
The identity of the 69-year-old woman was not yet available. Drug or alcohol are not suspected to be a factor in the incident.
