LUCERNE VALLEY – Two were transported, one with severe injuries were airlifted from the Johnson Dry Lake Bed on Sunday afternoon after an off-road vehicle collision.
At around 12:30 p.m. two San Bernardino County Sheriff’s helicopters, along with the CHP and the San Bernardino County Fire Department firefighters responded to reports of an off-road traffic collision. The reporting party told dispatchers that the vehicle rolled over and the driver was injured in the desert area north of the Johnson Dry Lakebed. Still, the exact location was unknown but emergency medical personnel responded to the area to search for the patient. A second reporting party called after coming across the traffic collision and was able to provide the GPS location.
Using the provided information, the Sheriff’s helicopter was able to locate the victim and provide an off-site landing. After landing they learned that there were two patients involved in the collision, both unrestrained at the time of the collision. The driver was ejected and sustained major injuries. The passenger was not ejected but was also injured. The air medic immediately contacted the driver and provided medical aid, while a Corporal tended to the passenger. Both of the victims, Carrie Brown, 55, of Chino Hills, and Justin Brown, 32, of Chino Hills, were airlifted to Loma Linda Medical treatment.For late-breaking news, follow 24/7 Headline News on our Los Angeles County Facebook group, Riverside County Facebook group, Coachella Valley News group, US News group, Victor Valley/Inland Empire Facebook group.
