HESPERIA – One man died and two sustained major injuries as a result of a Wednesday night traffic collision officials said. At around 11:25 p.m. on Wednesday, April 25, 2018, two vehicles collided head-on in the area of Peach Avenue, just north of Cherry Street in the City of Hesperia. Deputies and personnel from the San Bernardino County Fire Department were dispatched to the scene to find two vehicles which sustained major damage. The involved vehicles were a 2001 Honda and a 2015 Nissan.
Emergency personnel triaged the patients and learned that a man was trapped inside of the Honda. He was determined to be deceased as a result of the injuries sustained. In the Nissan, there was a woman and a juvenile female, who both sustained major injuries. Both the adult and juvenile females were airlifted to Arrowhead Regional Medical Center for treatment of their injuries.
The Hesperia Station Major Accident Investigation Team (MAIT) team responded to the scene closing Peach Avenue in both directions from Cherry Street to Hercules Street in order to collect evidence and clear the scene. It is unknown if alcohol or driver speed contributed to the collision. Through investigation, it was learned that the Honda was driving south on Peach Avenue and for unknown reasons crossed over the double yellow line into the northbound lane. At the same time, the Nissan was traveling north on Peach Avenue and the two collided head-on. Both vehicles sustained major damage and Peach was blocked to all traffic by the mangled vehicles.
The investigation is on-going and anyone with information regarding the collision is asked to contact Deputy Taylor Lamson or Sergeant Doug Hubbard from the Hesperia Sheriff’s Station at (760) 947-1500
