HESPERIA – A 3-year-old boy suffered major head injuries and unknown possible internal injuries after being ejected from a vehicle on Friday, May 18, 2018.
At around 1:43 p.m. deputies from the Hesperia station and emergency medical personnel responded to a two-vehicle traffic collision at Sultana Street and Hickory Avenue in the City of Hesperia. When they arrived they found a 2011 Ford Edge SUV and a 2004 Scion that had collided at the intersection. The child was found to be ejected from the Scion during the collision.
Both drivers, who were adult females suffered only minor injuries and did not request immediate medical attention. The child was airlifted to Loma Linda University Medical Center and was reported to be in stable condition. The roadways were closed at Sultana Street and Hickory Avenue in both directions during the investigation as evidence was collected. The exact cause of the collision is still unclear and the vehicles restraint systems will be examined to check if the child was properly restrained at the time of the collision.
Anyone with information is asked to call Deputy Taylor Lamson or Sergeant Doug Hubbard at the Hesperia Station.
