VICTORVILLE – A 60-year-old Victorville man was arrested for DUI after being involved in two hit-and-run collisions and a third collision where he was forced to remain at the scene.
On Friday, August 17, 2018, deputies from the Victorville Sheriff’s Station responded to the report of a hit-and-run crash in the area of El Evado and Luna Road. As deputies headed to the scene, they received a second call reporting a second hit-and-run collision in the nearby area of El Evado.

Deputies learned that Pink Wright, the driver of a 2007 Kia Optima was the driver involved in all of the three collisions. It was learned that the first of the collision involved a 2016 Ford Flex when Wright struck the back of the vehicle then fled the scene.

The vehicle sustained major damage and Wright was located at the scene.
