High Speed Pursuit Leads to Traffic Collision Causing Major Injury to Suspect

APPLE VALLEY – A male suspect is yet to be identified following a high-speed pursuit and collision on Friday. At around 1:17 a.m. a sergeant from the Apple Valley Station attempted to stop a 2-door, silver, 2004 Honda sedan in the area of Bear Valley and Mohawk Roads due to vehicle lighting issue. The Honda sped away from the sergeant heading south on Mohawk Road.

He sped down residential streets at some points reaching over 100 miles per hour. The driver eventually lost control at Mohawk Road and Wren Street causing the vehicle to leave the road, slam through a railroad fence and overturned twice before coming to a rest. The driver who suffered major injuries was trapped in the vehicle and was extricated from the Honda. He was airlifted to Arrowhead Regional Medical Center, but his identity remains unknown since he did not have an identification card in his possession.

The San Bernardino County Sheriff’s Department Regional Major Accident Investigation Team (MAIT) was dispatched to the scene and is currently investigating the collision. Anyone with information is urged to contact MAIT Investigator Dep. Teplansky or MAIT Investigator Dep. Lovasco at the Apple Valley Station (760) 240-7400.Callers wishing to remain anonymous are urged to call the We-Tip Hotline at 1-800-78-CRIME (27463), or you can leave information on the We-Tip website
