Pedestrian airlifted after Hesperia crash
Senior driving antique car hits senior in crosswalk
HESPERIA • Two senior citizens were involved in a collision that shut down eastbound Main Street on Wednesday.
At approximately noon, the sheriff's Hesperia station received a call about a collision between a vehicle and a pedestrian on Main Street near Peach Street, according to San Bernardino County Sheriff’s Department spokesperson Cindy Bachman.
The male pedestrian appeared to be crossing in the crosswalk when he was struck by a vehicle on Main Street, according to Hesperia watch commander Colleen Kuhn.
Both the driver of the vehicle and the pedestrian were at least 75 years old, according to Bachman.
A witness at the scene described the vehicle as a bright red antique car. The witness said the vehicle was blocking traffic and sitting perpendicular to the sidewalk on the eastbound side of Main Street.
The pedestrian sustained major injuries in the collision. He was bleeding and was airlifted to Antelope Valley Hospital because of inclement weather, according to Hesperia Sgt. Ken Lutz.
Eastbound Main Street at Peach was shut down for approximately 40 minutes following the crash, according to Bachman.
The incident is still under investigation by the Hesperia station, according to Kuhn.
