One Killed and One Injured in Hesperia Highway 395 Crash

HESPERIA – One man lost his life and a second is suffering from major injuries after a head-on collision on Highway 395 near Main Street in the City of Hesperia.

On Thursday, August 16, 2018, at around 7:00 p.m., deputies from the Hesperia Station and emergency medical personnel responded to a two-vehicle collision just south of Main Street. When they arrived they located a badly damaged white 2011 Toyota Camry and black 2007 Scion sedan. The driver of the Scion was found to have major life-threatening injuries and he was rushed to Desert Valley Hospital for treatment. Despite lifesaving efforts, he died as a result of his injuries. The driver of the Camry also was badly injured and was airlifted to Arrowhead Regional Medical Center. The male adult driver is expected to survive his injuries.

Through investigation, it was learned that the Scion was traveling north on Highway 395 when for unknown reasons he left the roadway onto the right shoulder. The driver lost control and crossed over the double yellow lines into the path of the southbound traveling Camry.  All lanes of Highway 395 were blocked and 395 was shut down in both directions from Main Street to Joshua until 11:00 p.m. when the investigation was complete

The collision investigation is ongoing and anyone with information is asked to contact Deputy Eric Getts or Sergeant Doug Hubbard from the Hesperia Station.
