Three Injured in New Years Eve Vehicle Versus Pedestrian Collision

Update: (1-1-17) The man and woman both remain hospitalized and in stable condition.  

VICTORVILLE – A man and woman sustained major injuries after being hit by a vehicle on Mojave Drive near Condor Road in the City of Victorville Saturday night.

At around 10:30 p.m. deputies from the Victorville Station and San Bernardino County Fire Department medics were dispatched to the scene of the collision. When they arrived they located a 55-year-old female in full arrest and a male who was conscious and breathing.

Victorville station Sergeant Jason Rosenbaum told a 24/7 Headline News reporter that CPR was performed on the female. “The female was breathing and had a heartbeat when transported,” said Sergeant Rosenbaum. “The male was also conscious and breathing when transported.”

Two air ambulances were requested near the scene, of the collision, but declined due to weather conditions. Both immediate patients were transported by ground ambulance to Victor Valley Global Medical Center (VVGMC). Due to the extent of her injuries, the staff at VVGMC determined that the injured female should be transported to Loma Linda Medical Center for the treatment of her injuries. The male patient was also transported to a trauma center for the treatment of his injuries.

According to witness statements, the driver of the Nissan Versa was traveling in the eastbound lanes of Mojave Drive when the two pedestrians walked into the roadway, outside of the crosswalk. The driver did not have sufficient time to stop and struck both pedestrians.

Mojave Drive was closed to traffic from Village Drive to Topango Road. The driver remained at the scene and was cooperative throughout the investigation. Alcohol and/or drugs are not believed to be a factor in the collision. The driver was transported by ground ambulance to Victor Valley Global Medical Center for the complaint of pain.
