Two victims in ICU following Hesperia crash
Three vehicles involved in collision
HESPERIA • Two High Desert residents were admitted to intensive care units with serious injuries following a three-vehicle collision in Hesperia, officials said Tuesday.
Just before 4:30 p.m. Monday, a vehicle traveling west at a high rate of speed on Rock Springs Road failed to slow for the intersection, causing the driver to lose control and collide with two vehicles traveling east on Main Street, according to a San Bernardino County Sheriff’s Department press release.
The impact from the collision sent two of the vehicles onto the shoulder of the roadway with significant damage to the vehicles.
When deputies from the sheriff’s Hesperia station and rescue personnel from the San Bernardino County Fire Department responded to the scene, they found several victims with injuries inside two of the vehicles, according to the release.
Fire personnel used extrication equipment to remove the occupants from those two vehicles. Two female victims with severe injuries were transported by air to a valley area hospital and admitted to the ICU, according to the release.
The male driver of the primary vehicle was transported by ground ambulance to an area hospital with less serious injuries. The driver of the third vehicle was not injured.
The names of those involved in the crash have not been released, but all were adult High Desert residents.
Eastbound Main Street was closed for several hours during the investigation. The crash is still under investigation by deputies from the Hesperia Station Traffic Division. It is suspected that alcohol was a factor in the collision, according to the release.
Anyone with information or anyone who may have witnessed the collision is asked to contact Deputy Kevin McCurdy from the Hesperia station at (760) 947-1500.
