VICTORVILLE – One person died as a result of a flood in the City of Victorville on Friday evening. Deputies from the Victorville Station and the San Bernardino County Fire Department were dispatched to a flooded area where vehicles had been swept away by storm water just before 6:00 p.m.
Two vehicles were located in the area of Pebble Beach and Arrowhead Drives. Swift water rescue arrived at the scene to rescue those stranded in the deepening rain water. The Sheriff’s helicopter (40 King) was able to rescue one man who was able to exit his partially submerged vehicle and get on top of the vehicle to escape the fast-moving water.
The body of a driver who was located inside a fully submerged silver sedan was recovered from the wash that runs through Doris Davies Park.
The identity of the deceased person is unknown at the time. Information will be updated as it is becomes available.
