VICTORVILLE, CA. – A 20-year-old Victorville man was struck and killed by a black sedan while riding his motorcycle late Monday morning.
At around 11:37 a.m., deputies from the Hesperia station responded to Main Street and I Avenue for the report of a vehicle versus motorcycle collision. When they arrived they found the motorcycle and a Scion TC and Randy Baker Jr., 20, of Victorville, lying on the roadway.
Authorities said that the Scion TC which was driven by a woman, was traveling west, and made a left turn into a gas station, striking Baker. The driver remained at the scene to cooperate with the investigation.
San Bernardino County Fire Department firefighters responded to the scene. Initially the plan was to airlift Baker until his condition declined causing them to transport him to Desert Valley Hospital where he was pronounced deceased at 12:15 p.m., according to the coroner’s report.
A memorial account has been created through Go Fund Me to assist his remaining family that will now be faced with burying their loved one. According to the Go Fund Me Account, the family has suffered several losses together. Six children, including Randy, were left motherless, when their mother suddenly died in 2004, their father, Randy Sr. went on to raise his family. In 2006, Randy Sr. lost his life after being involved in a motorcycle accident.
The Go Fund Me account explains how the children were then separated, but later fought to be reunited. The six children reunited and rebonded. Since then, the oldest brother, Matt died as a result of a heart defect in February 2018, and now they have lost Randy Jr. The family needs time to grieve this unexpected loss and in order for them to do so, donations are being requested on their behalf to assist them with the costs associated with Randy Baker Jr.’s death.
