Woman Sustains Fatal Injuries in Hit-and-Run Vehicle Versus Pedestrian Collision

VICTORVILLE – A Victorville woman sustained serious injuries following a hit-and-run vehicle versus pedestrian collision on Friday evening.

At around 7:17 p.m. deputies, American Medical Response (AMR) , and the San Bernardino County Fire Department were dispatched to 7th Street near Lorene Drive for the collision with injuries. When they arrived they located a woman in her early-to-mid 60’s suffering from “very serious injuries” according to San Bernardino County Sheriff’s spokeswoman Cindy Bachman.

The vehicle information was not immediately clear, although some witnesses and evidence at the scene indicated the vehicle was a burgundy sedan. The Sheriff’s Helicopter and ground units searched for the suspect vehicle creating a perimeter in the area surrounding the collision. Surveillance footage was requested from nearby businesses and 7th Street was shut down between La Paz and Valley Center Drive so that deputies could investigate the collision.

According to the San Bernardino County Fire Department Battalion chief Marc Peebles the woman was transported to Victor Valley Global Medical Center by an AMR ambulance in preparation to be airlifted to a trauma center for the treatment of injuries.  As of 9:30 p.m. no arrest has been made.

UPDATE:  The woman is confirmed deceased as a result of her injuries.
