Bus Involved In Major Accident, Patient Being Airlifted

VICTORVILLE, Calif. (VVNG.com) A Victor Valley Transit bus and another vehicle were involved a traffic collision prompting a road closure.

The accident occurred on La Mesa Road between King Canyon Road and Amargosa Road at approximately 12:23 p.m. on Wednesday afternoon.

Deputy Amir Awad of the San Bernardino County Sheriff’s Department said that a Honda Civic struck the back of the bus, which was loading passengers.
