VICTORVILLE – A 21-year-old Victorville man lost his life after his vehicle lost control in the 13400 block of Mariposa Road in the City of Victorville on Monday evening.
At around 6:05 p.m. deputies from the Victorville station and emergency medical personnel responded to the area in front of the Southwest Gas at Mariposa Road and Talpa Street for the report of a traffic collision. When paramedics arrived they found an overturned 2007 white Honda Accord with major damage and a male subject pinned underneath the vehicle.
Through investigation, it was learned that driver, Sergio Fabian Martinez was driving northbound on Mariposa Road, fleeing the scene of a previous collision near Mariposa and Nisqualli Roads.
