HESPERIA – A 42-year-old Hesperia man remains in critical, but stable condition after a vehicle struck him and fled the scene on Sunday evening.
At around 6:45 p.m. a vehicle versus pedestrian collision was reported in the area of Seventh Avenue and Sequoia Street in the City of Hesperia. The reporting party told dispatchers that the vehicle that hit the male pedestrian fled the scene. When deputies and emergency medical personnel arrived they located the man lying in the road suffering from major injuries.
Due to the extent of the victim’s injuries, an air ambulance was requested, with the landing zone at Desert Valley Hospital. Through investigation, deputies learned that the involved vehicle was an older model “box shape” sedan. The sedan fled southbound on Seventh Avenue according to witnesses.
