VICTORVILLE – One was airlifted and two were transported by ground ambulance after a green Honda Civic slammed into the back of a Victor Valley Transit bus on Wednesday.
At around 12:22 p.m. Victorville Station deputies, the San Bernardino County Fire Department personnel, and AMR responded to the area of La Mesa and El Rio Roads for the report of a traffic collision. When they arrived, they located the bus and the Honda. “The call states there were 13 on the bus and 7 had a complaint of pain,” said San Bernardino County Sheriff’s Spokeswoman Cindy Bachman.
The driver of the Honda sustained minor injuries and the passenger was transported to Liberty Park by ground ambulance in preparation to be airlifted to a trauma center for treatment of major injuries.
The San Bernardino County Fire Department Spokesman Captain Dan Nelson told a 24/7 Headline News reporter that the 68-year-old passenger was a backseat passenger, who was not wearing a seatbelt at the time of the collision. Both driver and passenger were transported to the same hospital so that they can be together.
One passenger on the bus was transported to a local hospital for the complaint of pain.
Authorities said that the driver of the Honda was driving over the speed limit at the time of the crash.
