APPLE VALLEY – A 57-year-old woman was airlifted with major injuries after a traffic collision with a semi-truck early Saturday morning. At 3:55 a.m. a 1997 Mitsubishi sedan and a semi-truck, that was reportedly carrying hygiene products, collided head-on on CA-18 near Milpas Drive. The driver of the semi-truck excited the vehicle but the female was trapped in the vehicle and required extrication.
The driver of the semi-truck told authorities that the driver of the Mitsubishi swerved into his lane causing the crash. Following the head-on collision, a third vehicle with an unknown make or model hit the semi-truck, but fled the scene according to witness reports. The woman was freed from the vehicle at around 4:15 a.m. and was transported by ground ambulance to Lions park where an air ambulance arrived to transport her to Arrowhead Regional Hospital for the treatment of life-threatening injuries.
No other injuries were reported as a result of the collision. The cause of the collision remains under investigation by the California Highway Patrol.
