HESPERIA – A Hesperia woman was airlifted to a trauma center with major injuries after a hit-and-run vehicle versus pedestrian collision Sunday night.
The woman, who is described to be in her 40’s was at her home near 5th Avenue and Olive Street when some of her guests left briefly to the Fastrip Gas Station on Main Street and 5th Avenue. While at the gas station, according to witnesses, the guests were involved in an altercation with others at the gas station. They got back into their vehicle to leave and the other party followed them back to the home where the altercation continued in the street near the home.
The woman went out to the area of the altercation attempting to stop the fight. The two suspects ran back into their vehicle, described as a Chevy Tahoe and accelerated toward the woman and her friends. The vehicle hit the woman and fled the scene, leaving her lying in the roadway with major injuries. The suspect vehicle sped off southbound on 5th Avenue and turning westbound on Mesquite.
The woman was transported by ground ambulance to the Hesperia airport in preparation to be airlifted to a trauma center for treatment. The sheriff’s helicopter and ground units searched for the suspect vehicle and made contact with two male occupants of a silver Chevy Tahoe. At this time, it is unclear if the vehicle stopped was, in fact, the suspect vehicle.
